XML::Pastor::Builtin::date - Class for the W3C builtin type date.
This module is used internally by XML::Pastor. You do not normally know much about this module to actually use XML::Pastor. It is documented here for completeness and for XML::Pastor developers. Do not count on the interface of this module. It may change in any of the subsequent releases. You have been warned.
This class descends from XML::Pastor::Builtin::Scalar.
XML::Pastor::Builtin::date represents the builtin W3C type date.
This class inherits many methods from its ancestors. Please see XML::Pastor::Builtin::Scalar for more methods.
my $object = XML::Pastor::Builtin::date->fromDateTime($dt);
The fromDateTime() constructor method instantiates a new object from DateTime object. It is inheritable. The necessary conversion is done within the method.
This method sets the value of the object from a DateTime object. The necessary conversion is done within the method.
my $dt = $object->toDateTime();
This method returns the value of the object as a DateTime object. The necessary conversion is done within the method.
This method is overriden from XML::Pastor::SimpleType so that date values can be checked for logical inconsistencies. For example, a month value of 14 will cause an error (die).
There no known bugs at this time, but this doesn't mean there are aren't any. Note that, although some testing was done prior to releasing the module, this should still be considered alpha code. So use it at your own risk.
Note that there may be other bugs or limitations that the author is not aware of.
