# RT 4.2 - Use of "localtime" without parentheses is ambiguous

Hello all.

Getting the following warning message (RT 4.2 + RTIR 3.2):

Received an answer in private, thought it would be cool to share:

I was getting the same warning as the following rt-devel post which I
found online - though I’m not subscribed to so I’m posting my fix here

[warning]: Warning: Use of "localtime"
without parentheses is ambiguous at
/opt/rt4/sbin/…/lib/RT/Interface/Email.pm line 526.

Correction is to edit Email.pm and where it has “localtime”, use
“localtime()” instead. Cursory search online for perl localtime shows
examples with correct syntax.

Note: Am working in RT 4.2.11

PS: I don’t know what went through my mind to use (localtime) instead of
localtime(), lol.
