ok. I'm a bit of a Noob when it comes to perl - still learning so please be gentle.

My problem is this. I wish to validate a persons age - to ensure they are over 13 (coppa laws).
My biggest problem is that mktime will only deal with persons born after the 8th January 1970.
Is there a similar function that is capable to validating earlier birthdates?

TIA.
