Hi webmasters, instead of opening two threads, two questions here.
1. Should I worry on the limits of date (year) in Perl? I know Perl has its own y2k sort of limit on 2039 I think. I read about it and it was mentioned that we should not worry if the admins update the core whatever from 32 bits to 64 and perhaps newer versions of perl would eliminate this problem. Any ideas?
2. How do you get milliseconds in Perl? I can only get time down to seconds. I'm working on my latest CMS putting some new features I find very useful, but for several reasons including measuring how much time it takes to generate some simple and complex pages I would like to include on the page "this page was generated in XX milliseconds... or seconds". I like to go simple and fast but some procedures require tweaking.
