There are thousands of ways....

Try looking first at

perldoc -f localtime

That will show you that you can do

( $sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) = localtime;
$mon++;
$date = "$mday/$mon/$year";
$time = "$hour:$min";

If you need more flexibility than that, take a look at Date::Calc and Date::Manip

is perl on your path? If so, perldoc should be also.  What happens when you run it? (Does activeState include perldoc???)
