If you get an error in a script you should always post the script with your question. You should also explain what you want your script to do. This would help the exports to give you a correct answer.

However, since your Perl version is so old, you could try to download and install a newer version of Perl.

perl is also included in cygwin.
it's perl 5.6.1 or more recent. very compatible with
most cpan modules and no @INC error.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

Accept a comment rj2 (it's not a direct answer but it should lead to installation of Time/local which should solve the problem unless user forgot to add "use Time::Local;")

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.
