Hi
i have seen couple of example of convert the date to string. but dont
understand how to use that in my example

remote_date=`cat #{file} | grep -m 1   'Current time:'  | awk {'print
$3'}`
remote_time =`cat #{file} | grep -m 1   'Current time:'  | awk {'print
$4'}`

puts remote_date     ::::2012-11-11
puts remote_time     :::: 17:57:05

current_date=`date +%Y-%m-%d`
current_time=`date +%H:%M:%S`

if remote_date.to_s == current_date then
  puts "Date is same"

else

  puts "Time differences found"

end
puts current_date   :::2012-11-11
puts current_time   :::17:57:11

Basically, want i want is :

if current time is 1 min or less then 1 min different then remote time
everything is fine, but more then 1 min difference  is  a problem

any help will be great.

it would be great if i can do this without installing any  ruby module
(which have to install )

thanks
