Actually, I only want something as simple as GNU's date command:
-> date --date=yesterday +%Y%m%d
-> date --date="next week" +%Y%m%d

1) You can do plenty of date calculation with core perl if you can work 
localtime and you're handy with arithmetic (and a little bit of modular 

2) If you have a working C compiler you can install Date::Calc in your home 
directory. If you don't, I bet you can find some pure-perl module that does 
what you need.
