( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In the spirit of TMTOWTDI ... and in the spirit of "How do I do X with Y", I present: "How do I do X ... with X?":

my @info = stat $tapes; print 'this file hasn't been modified in a while' if -M _ > 7;

The -M function was written specifically for this - as long as you have a short-running script. That's becasue -M compares the modification time to the time that your script started. If you have something running in a persistant environment (e.g., mod_perl), this is probably not what you want. Cron jobs, however, would be somewhere that this just makes things easier.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
