Which, incidentally, appears to have disappeared from CPAN. At least,
CPAN.pm doesn't know about it any more. And
http://search.cpan.org/search?mode=modulequery=Date%3A%3AMMDDYY also says
No modules found matching Date::MMDDYY. Pity :)

Cheers,
Philip, who was looking forward to v2 of the module, incorporating
london.pm's suggestions

Remember, for loops are for JS, not perl. You cant use semicolons in perl,
unless theyre before a carriage return. 
end_quote

And this from someone who describes himself as a PERL Master.

Maybe we should send him the London pm review copy of the new Learning Perl
when it arrives. I'm sure he'll appreciate this goodwill jesture,
especially if a certain few take the trouble to autograph it for him.

 Erm, My eyes keep darting to your FOR loops. For is mainly used in
 javascript, and perl doesnt handle them, mainly because of the semicolons
 used to split the operations. Instead of for, use foreach, because thats
 close to the perl equivalent of for. I'm not sure exactly what that would
 translate to into perl, but if you want to do something in a foreach loop,
 it would look like 
 
 foreach $ArrayItemYouNeedToChange (@TheArray) { 
 #do this 
 }
