local($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) = localtime;

I tried the code line above.
but all I got is just something like
  $sec=Time::tmARRAY(...)

What is wrong about this ?

There's more to what's going on than what you're showing us.... however, in the first place, use

my($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) = localtime;


What else is in your code.... Ulpp.  You could also be using an ancient ActiveState

Try to use this:

($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime(time);

works for me everytime...
