=head1 -M and other time() file tests under mod_perl

Under mod_perl, files that have been created after the server's
(child) startup are reported as having a negative age with C<-M>
(C<-C> C<-A>) test. This is obvious if you remember that you will get
the negative result if the server was started before the file was
created.  It's normal behavior with perl.

If you want to have C<-M> report the time relative to the current
request, you should reset the C<$^T> variable just as with any other
perl script. Add C<$^T=time;> at the beginning of the script.
