Time::Beat - Module to convert from standard time to swatch 'beat' time.
use Time::Beat qw ( beattime );
my $time_in_beats = beattime(time());
Time::Beat is a module to provide you with the time in beats.
It takes a
time() formatted string,
and outputs the time in beats.
The basic algorithm for doing this is to take time in GMT+1 hour,
convert it into seconds,
and divide by 86.4.
Hopefully I'll get it converting backwards at some point.
beattime is the one and only function in Time::Beat.
It will give you the current time in beats if you do not specify a time string.
If you specify a time string it will return that particular time in beats.
If gmtime.hours == 23 before then problems were caused because the hour became 24 - it should have been 0. The problem has now been fixed.
