Can't handle date problem.

I have absolutely no experience with perl and I have been asked as a last resort to determine why part of the administration of a web site has fallen over.

The error I get is:
Can't handle date (0, 0, 0, 0, 12, 103) at e:\inetpub\vs159156\cgi-bin\fr_shop.plx line 63

The actual line in the code is:
my $endTime = timegm_nocheck (0,0,0,0,1+(gmtime)[4],(gmtime)[5]);

Now, I am not really sure what is wrong the date to make it not want to be able to handle it. I seems though that perhaps that 4th zero should not be there. Does anyone know?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Okay, it looks like the month is zero based. Meaning 11 is December and January 0. So 12 is out of bounds.

Looks like the previous coder was a little lazy try to get the next month.

I just added in a condition for when the month is December so that it just set the day to the 31st.

You seem to be doing very well for someone who has absolutely no experience with Perl!

Now that you've solved your problem yourself, you should go to Community Support (that's the CS button on the menu at the top of all Experts Exchange pages), click on Ask a Question, and post a message asking to delete this question and refund your points. Be sure to paste in a link to this question to make it easier for the moderators, but it can be as simple as

my $endTime = timegm_nocheck (0,0,0,0,(1+(gmtime)[4])%12,(1+(gmtime)[4])/12+(gmtime)[5]);
#but there's still a window when the month can tick over between calls to gmtime.  Better to read @g=gmtime; once, then do the arithmetic on $g[4], $g[5]

Nothing has happened on this question in more than 8 weeks. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
PAQ, refund points (asker posted their solution -- or accept answer by ozo).

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!
