Default quicker way to create variables in perl - dynamic?

Code:
            @sday = split(/=/, $sday);
            @smon = split(/=/, $smon);
            @eday = split(/=/, $eday);
            @emon = split(/=/, $emon);
is there a quicker way to do this? in a loop?

I'm not advising that you do, but:

Code:
eval '@'.$_.'=split /=/,$'.$_.';' for qw|sday smon eday emon|;
twisted!

Wrong sort of equality test there, you need == because its a number. If you're trying to do what I think you're trying to do you could use :

Code:
$startday = sprintf '%02d', $startday;
