PERL script executed with SSI <!-- exec......... has access to ENVIRONMENT Variable
DATE_LOCAL but the same script used with the POST method from an HTML FORM
doesn't have it. They both have most of the same ENV VAR. but not this one. In fact there
doesn't seem to be any variable with the POST method to get the current date.
How else can I get the current date?
