"In days" is exactly the same as "in seconds", except that the numbers
are all divided by 86,400.

There's nothing magical about seconds.  To compare the dates of two
files, you don't need seconds.  You just need to compare them:

        if (-M '.y2log' < -M '.y2log-1') {
          print ".y2log is newer than .ylog-1\n"; 
        } else {
          print ".y2log is olfer than .ylog-1\n";
