Returned Data Format
unless the 'String' option is specified, this routine returns a hash
reference containing the following data:
(even though no code in Shawn's post I received) I was just about to
reply saying that it looked like he was accessing a ref to a hash
rather than dereferencing and getting the hash.
BTW I think the doc says the default if not specified is seconds
(which in turn I think makes it optional in this case to have the
ConvertTo'=>'seconds' parameter). no such parameter
equates/reverts/uses to the default of seconds (unless I
mixed_up/transposed something else (something entirely different) and
it came out (of the brain I guess) as that.
