Pinwheel::Model::DateBase - base class for date/time data types

SYNOPSIS ^

    # $dt = Pinwheel::Model::Date ....
    # or
    # $dt = Pinwheel::Model::Time ....

    $dt->year;  # e.g. 2008
    $dt->month; # month, 1..12
    $dt->day;   # day of the month, 1..31
    $dt->mm;    # month, "01".."12"
    $dt->dd;    # day of the month, "01".."31"
    $dt->wday;  # day of the week, 0(Sun)..6(Sat)
    $dt->yday;  # day of the year, 0(1 Jan)..365(31 Dec in a leap year)

    $dt->bbc_year;          # ?
    $dt->bbc_week;          # ?

    $dt->iso_year;          # ?
    $dt->iso_week;          # ?
    $dt->iso_weekday;       # day of the week, 1(Mon)..7(Sun)

    $dt->days_in_month;     # number of days in this month
    $dt->month_name;        # "January".."December"
    $dt->short_month_name;  # "Jan".."Dec"

    $dt->day_name;          # "Sunday".."Saturday"
    $dt->short_day_name;    # "Sun".."Sat"
    $dt->day_suffix;        # one of: "st" "nd" "rd" "th"
    $dt->day_ordinal;       # e.g. "1st", "2nd", ... "31st"

    $dt->strftime($format); # see "man strftime"


    # $dt->replace returns a new object (of the same type as $dt)
    # by replacing parts of $dt according to %values.  Allowed keys in %values
    # are: sec min hour day month year.
    # TODO: document validation, range checking, etc.

    $new_dt = $dt->replace(%values);

    $dt->last_of_month;  # $dt->replace(day => 31)
    $dt->first_of_month; # $dt->replace(day => 1)


    # $dt->offset returns a new object (of the same type as $dt)
    # by adjusting $dt according to %deltas.  Allowed keys in %deltas are:
    # days, months, years.
    # TODO: document how 'months' works, and what about leap days in 'years'

    $new_dt = $dt->offset(%deltas);

    $dt->next_day;       # $dt->offset(days => +1)
    $dt->previous_day;   # $dt->offset(days => -1)
    $dt->next_week;      # $dt->offset(days => +7)
    $dt->previous_week;  # $dt->offset(days => -7)
    $dt->next_month;     # $dt->offset(months => +1)
    $dt->previous_month; # $dt->offset(months => -1)
