NAME ^

DateTime::Format::Builder::Parser::Quick - Use another formatter, simply

VERSION ^

version 0.81

SYNOPSIS ^

    use DateTime::Format::Builder (
    parsers => { parse_datetime => [
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::HTTP' },
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::Mail' },
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::IBeat' },
    ]});

is the same as:

    use DateTime::Format::HTTP;
    use DateTime::Format::Mail;
    use DateTime::Format::IBeat;

    use DateTime::Format::Builder (
    parsers => { parse_datetime => [
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::HTTP->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::Mail->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::IBeat->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
    ]});

(These two pieces of code can both be found in the test suite; one as quick.t, the other as fall.t.)

DESCRIPTION ^

Quick adds a parser that allows some shortcuts when writing fairly standard and mundane calls to other formatting modules.

SPECIFICATION ^

Quick has two keys, one optional.

The Quick keyword should have an argument of either an object or a class name. If it's a class name then the class is used.

The method keyword is optional with a default of parse_datetime. It's either name of the method to invoke on the object, or a reference to a piece of code.

In any case, the resultant code ends up looking like:

     my $rv = $Quick->$method( $date );

SUPPORT ^

See DateTime::Format::Builder for details.
