I more or less took your advice about man pages except decided to
let the perldoc site do all the dirty work for me
and found this within
"$mon the month in the range 0..11, with 0 indicating January and 11 indicating December. This makes it easy to get a month name from a list"
That makes perfect sense but doesn't really explain the 16 bit binary
month in FTN pkt headers or does it?
Do any of your modules use the output from an incoming packet
in that manner?
Offhand I cannot really see it being of any real consequence but
then again I haven't seen the value of ANY of the data within a
pkt header so I might be extremely prejudiced.
At the very least I now know why $mon is 0..11 in localtime and it has nothing to do with direct display of it's value and more to do with zero based lists, arrays, etc.
