Yeah, we ran into a problem with this today. A schedule we use to
display KET's programming was looking for "jan100" at midnight last
night. Dave Hempy, another Perlmonger and fellow KET hacker came up with
the following solution:

$year = $year % 100;
$year = sprintf("%02d",$year);

If you want to work with the entire four digit year, I guess you'd add
1900 to your year and go from there. But if you've been working with two
digits, this works quite well.

Felice Nuovo Anno,
