Issue with scrip

Hi all,

I am having a strange issue with a script, I was wondering if those who are
a bit more proficient than myself can give me a couple of pointers.

The issue is that sometimes, quite regularly actually, it is printing a date
that is 1 month behind the current date. this has me very confused, there
are a few that wrote the date properly, (about 17 out of 330). So with out
further complications, here is a copy of the scrip.

my $CF_Obj = RT::CustomField->new($self->CurrentUser);

my $cf_name = ‘Ticket_resolveDate’;
my ( $sec, $min, $hour, $day, $mon, $year ) = localtime( time );
my $cf_value = sprintf( ‘%d-%02d-%02d %02d:%02d:%02d’, $year + 1900, $mon,
$day, $hour, $min, $sec );
$CF_Obj->LoadByName( Name => $cf_name,);
$RT::Logger->debug( “Loaded $CF_Obj->Name = “. $CF_Obj->Name() .”\n” );

$CF_Obj->AddValueForObject( Object => $self->TicketObj,
Content => $cf_value, );
1;

Thanks in advance,
Bill G.

You may want to read
$ perldoc -f localtime

which explains that $mon is not 1-12

Also, you may want one of the functions from RT::Date rather than
doing it by hand.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the Quick response. Is there any good documentation anywhere on
the RT:Date functions? A quick search of the wiki resulted in nothing more
or less, so for the time being, I believe the solution should be something
along the lines of:

 my $CF_Obj = RT::CustomField->new($self->CurrentUser);
 my $cf_name = 'Ticket_resolveDate';
 my ( $sec, $min, $hour, $day, $mon, $year ) = localtime( time );
 my $cf_value = sprintf( '%d-%02d-%02d %02d:%02d:%02d', $year + 1900,

$mon + 1, $day, $hour,
$min, $sec );
$CF_Obj->LoadByName( Name => $cf_name,);
$RT::Logger->debug( “Loaded $CF_Obj->Name = “. $CF_Obj->Name() .”\n”
);

 $CF_Obj->AddValueForObject( Object => $self->TicketObj,
 Content => $cf_value, );
 1;

Thanks,
