$file_date = 966152578;

$formatted_file_date=  localtime($file_date);
# returns a string: Sun Aug 13 17:42:58 2000
print $formatted_file_date;

# or to get all components, $mon will be in the range 0..1, where 0 is January
($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime($file_date);

thanks anant, I didn't not mean that you should select mine, because I was clearly wrong, I was hoping you would have accepted Sapa's answer.

thanks for closing the question, however.

Taking an array slice will let you look at the 3 values only

($mday,$mon,$year) = (localtime($file_date))[3,4,5];
$year += 1900;
print "day: $mday month: $mon year: $year";

bebonham - i accepted your because of your home made recipe not because of the array stuff... As my question was about optimization and not array(array was juat an example).

teraplane - i figured that out. thanks anyway.
