Looking for old Date::Calc module

Hi all,

I'm looking for an old version of Date::Calc, but it doesn't seem to be
archived on CPAN itself, and backpan hasn't been too friendly.

http://backpan.cpan.org/modules/by-m...alc-2.2.tar.gz
returns a 404 (as do most of the links on that page).

I'm looking for 2.2 or 4.2.

Any suggestions?

Regards,

Dan

Switch to Ruby. Example:
-------------------------------------------------------
require "date"

Date.new(2004,2,25).upto(Date.new(2004,3,2)) do |date|
puts date.to_s
end
-------------------------------------------------------
Output:

2004-02-25
2004-02-26
2004-02-27
2004-02-28
2004-02-29
2004-03-01
2004-03-02

I don't know if it's what you want, but it's what you get.
Just don't compare it with a real language, or you'll be unhappy...

Yes, William, I know all about Ruby. I've been using it for about 4
years now.

This is for a work project where I'm moving an old Perl project to a
new box. No, I'm not going to port it.

Please quote some context when you reply.

So, I posted the wrong URL.

I'm at a loss to figure out how switching to ruby will help the OP find
any version of a Perl module, much less one that's not on CPAN.

Of course, I'm at a loss to figure out why you keep posting about ruby
here. Well, other than the obvious reason.

Or .... to correct the typo:
http://backpan.perl.org/authors/id/S...alc-2.2.tar.gz

which *does* work for me, unlike:
http://backpan.cpan.org/modules/by-m...alc-2.2.tar.gz

(which produces a 404 for me, too).

Cheers,
Rob

No, it's more likely you were in such a rush to try to make yourself
look smart that you never got past the first 5 words of my OP, ran off
to backpan, posted the first URL you found and said, "Google?". Never
mind that it was the same URL I had already posted.

I see the Asberger's quotient is still as high as it ever was here on
c.l.p.m. At least I won't have to worry about any more snarky (and
useless) responses from you.

And what would that obvious reason be?

If I was to learn another language, I'd be significantly less inclined
to consider Ruby now after that troll has poisoned this group for some time.
