How do you want to pass the values: date string and amount to add?

This uses literal values:


use warnings;
use strict;

use POSIX qw(strftime);

my $dt_str = 'May 18 2011 9:50AM';
my $sec_to_add = 24 * 60 * 60;

my $dt = qx/
  date -d "$dt_str" +%s
  / + $sec_to_add;

print strftime( '%B %d %Y %H:%M%p', localtime $dt ), "\n";
