CPAN's Time::Format module for easy date/time formatting

The nice thing about having a variable-like interface instead of function calls is that the values can be used inside of strings (as well as outside of strings in ordinary expressions). Dates are frequently used within strings (log messages, output, data records, etc.), so having the ability to interpolate them directly is handy.
