#!/usr/bin/perl
use Date::Calc qw( Date_to_Days );
($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime(time);
print "Days: ",Date_to_Days($year+1900,$mon,$mday) - Date_to_Days(1955,5,11);

There should be a "+1" on the month

#!/usr/bin/perl
use Date::Calc qw( Date_to_Days );
($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime(time);
print "Days: ",Date_to_Days($year+1900,$mon+1,$mday) - Date_to_Days(1955,5,11);

Got an error :-(

Can't locate Date/Calc.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/5.00405 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .)

I have a problem to install the module since this script is running on remote service where I do not have access. Is it possible to do it without additional module?
