Next: log EXPR
Converts a time as returned by the time function to a 9-element array with
the time analyzed for the local time zone. Typically used as follows:
# 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
All array elements are numeric, and come straight out of a struct tm. In
particular this means that
$mon has the range 0..11 and
$wday has the range 0..6 with sunday as day 0. Also,
$year is the number of years since 1900, that is,
$year is 123 in year 2023.
EXPR is omitted, uses the current time (localtime(time)).
In a scalar context, returns the
$now_string = localtime; # e.g., "Thu Oct 13 04:54:34 1994"
Also see the Time::Local module, and the
mktime(3) function available via the
