view date format how to diplay set text solow msg:3776597 11:14 am on Oct 30, 2008 (gmt 0) hello people,
I'm awefully new at perl.
*and dutch so...*
I have a xml file, I want to display the date, and this is what it returns *in perl*:
What I want it to return is: 24-10-2008 15:37
How do I do this?
I tried using date::Format, perhaps I did something wrong, but i can't get it to work properly...
thanks in advanced

welcome to WebmasterWorld [ webmasterworld.com], wesley!
please post your best effort at Date::Format and we can probably fix it.
you need to massage the time string to create an input for time2str. your time2str conversion format should be: Nick1973 msg:3784822 2:33 pm on Nov 12, 2008 (gmt 0)
use POSIX; print strftime('%d-%m-%Y %H:%M',localtime(TIMEVALUE())); g1smd msg:3787351 6:22 pm on Nov 16, 2008 (gmt 0)
What date is 02-11-2008 representing?
Is it Feb 11th or 2nd November?
That very much depends on the reader, which is why you ought to consider using the ISO 8601 format on your website as the default format. In the Netherlands see NEN ISO 8601 (1994) and NEN EN 28601 (1994) and later revisions (2000, and 2004?).

What date is 02-11-2008 representing? the OP refers to an october 24th date as an example, which removes the ambiguity. g1smd msg:3787934 3:19 pm on Nov 17, 2008 (gmt 0)
Not for the reader it doesn't.
