Hi.......
I am using ....
$DATE = (join'-',(split/ /,localtime)[4,1,2]);

@time = localtime;
$DATE = sprintf "%d-%02d-%02d", $time[5]+1900, $time[4]+1, $time[3];

Or to make it a one-liner...
$DATE = sprintf "%d-%02d-%02d", (localtime)[5]+1900, (localtime)[4]+1, (localtime)[3];

#also:
use POSIX;
$DATE = strftime("%Y-%m-%d",localtime);

#another one-liner:
$DATE = sprintf"%d-%02d-%02d",map{$_+(0,1,1900)[-(?^?..!??)]}(localtime)[5,4,3];
