Google came up with the following: 

use Date::Calc qw(Delta_Days); 

my @today = (localtime)[107,10,28];
$today[0] += 1900;

my @fromday = (2007, 9, 13);
my $days = Delta_Days(@birthday, @today); 

print "$days days in between\n"; 

So you could see to use Date::Calc or check it out and steal their code for 
determining the delta. Maybe this helps.
