rewrite date

I'm looking to have function that takes the present month and rewrites it into this form: _06_ (june), _09_ (september), and so on..

I would like this to be a my $this_month=code that rewrites date function

because I would like to be a able to call it multiple times in the script by writing $this_month

Something like this?

this_month=$(date "+_%m_")

Check the man page of date.

I don't know much about programming so you'll excuse me if I'm using this the wrong way.

I put this at the top of the script:

my $this_month=$(date "+_%m_")

and then wrote $this_month where I wanted it to be printed.

I got: 500 Internal Server Error

Looks like an http server error. Are you asking for a shell script solution or a web app solution?

This is a web application (.cgi).

I'm going to use this in print <<EOF many times so I would like it to be simple to call it.

I got this to work:

my $this_month = `date "+_%m_"`;

Thanks for the help
