Date Manipulation

P: 1
Hi,

I have a datetime field eg (25/01/2008 02:19:35). What I need to do is add 8 hours to this datetime field to give me a new value of (25/01/2008 10:19:35). Can this be done in Perl? Is there any sample script out there.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers.

I would use the Time::Local module. http://perldoc.perl.org/Time/Local.html

there are same Date modules on CPAN you can use for this too, but I think Time::Local would be easiest since it comes with perl.

Have you tried to write any code yet?
