Date Dependencies

Hi,
 I have a Y2k non-compliant system in the office. They have asked me to find the date dependancies and change the code in perl.
How do i determine date dependancy?

Thanks

Take a look at http://www.perl.com/pub/1999/01/y2k.html 
Functions like localtime will return the year value with 1900 subtracted from it, so 99 is 1999 and 101 is 2001. If you always add 1900 to the year value there should be no problem.
