NAME ^

ORM::Date - Date handler class.

SYNOPSIS ^

  $date = ORM::Date->new( [ 2006, 1, 25 ] );
  print $date->mysql_date,"\n";
  $date = $date->diff( [ 0, 0, -2 ] );
  print $date->mysql_date,"\n";

  The output is:
  2006-01-25
  2005-11-25

DESCRIPTION ^

This class introduces minimal interface to handle database table fields of type 'DATE'. It can be used to store time alogn with date, but ORM uses class ORM::Datetime to handle fields of type DATETIME.

Please also consult ORM::Datetime to be sure you know how these classes are used by ORM.

If you want to use another class to handle 'DATE' fields, please consult:

CONSTRUCTORS ^

new( [ $year, $month, $mday, $hour, $min, $sec ] )

Create new ORM::Date object as specified in array reference. $year should be exact four digit value. $month is number in range between 1 and 12.

If some value is out of range then it is treated as in mktime syscall, e.g. [2005,10,15,25,15,00] is the same as [2005,10,16,01,15,00].

new_epoch( $seconds_since_epoch )

Create date object from value of seconds since epoch (as returned by time). ORM::Date->new_epoch( time ) is the same as ORM::Date->current.

new_mysql( $datetime_string )

Create date object from MySQL DATE or DATETIME string.

OBJECT PROPERTIES ^

Return seconds since epoch for the date object.

sec

Return 'seconds' part of the date.

min

Return 'minutes' part of the date.
