I'm still a little new to perl, so please forgive my ignorance. I'm trying to test for the time on a specific date. I would like to just execute the unix command date from a perl script and then store the results of date in a variable. However, when I run 'system(date);' the date prints out. If I try setting a variable equal to 'system(date);' I merely get the return value.
Does anyone know how to store the results of a system() command in a variable?
