FAQ 8.15 How do I set the time and date?


This is an excerpt from the latest version perlfaq8.pod, which
comes with the standard Perl distribution. These postings aim to
reduce the number of repeated questions as well as allow the community
to review and update the answers. The latest version of the complete
perlfaq is at http://faq.perl.org .

--------------------------------------------------------------------

8.15: How do I set the time and date?

    Assuming you're running under sufficient permissions, you should be able
    to set the system-wide date and time by running the date(1) program.
    (There is no way to set the time and date on a per-process basis.) This
    mechanism will work for Unix, MS-DOS, Windows, and NT; the VMS
    equivalent is "set time".

    However, if all you want to do is change your time zone, you can
    probably get away with setting an environment variable:

            $ENV{TZ} = "MST7MDT";              # unixish
            $ENV{'SYS$TIMEZONE_DIFFERENTIAL'}="-5" # vms
            system "trn comp.lang.perl.misc";

The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
perlfaq.pod.
