Subject: Re: dbh->newdate function
Date: Feb 9 1996 3:06PM

I want to perform date calculations in Perl (i.e. subtracting one date from
another, etc) and was going to ask if any date handling packages are
availible for Perl when the following message was posted:

>> From: kkitts@uhd2.uhd.com (Kevin Kitts)
>>   I am trying to use a call that I saw at the Sybperl website...
>> 
>> $date = $dbh->newdate('Jan 1 1995');
>> 

Does this mean that I can access Sybase's date handling logic via a call
from Perl?  If so, is this capability availible in version of Perl prior to 5.0?
