NAME ^

DateTime::Format::Epoch - Convert DateTimes to/from epoch seconds

SYNOPSIS ^

  use DateTime::Format::Epoch;

  my $dt = DateTime->new( year => 1970, month => 1, day => 1 );
  my $formatter = DateTime::Format::Epoch->new(
                      epoch          => $dt,
                      unit           => 'seconds',
                      type           => 'int',    # or 'float', 'bigint'
                      skip_leap_secondss => 1,
                      start_at       => 0,
                      local_epoch    => undef,
                  );

  my $dt2 = $formatter->parse_datetime( 1051488000 );
   # 2003-04-28T00:00:00

  $formatter->format_datetime($dt2);
   # 1051488000

DESCRIPTION ^

This module can convert a DateTime object (or any object that can be converted to a DateTime object) to the number of seconds since a given epoch. It can also do the reverse.

METHODS ^

BUGS ^

I think there's a problem when you define a count that does not skip leap seconds, and uses the local timezone. Don't do that.

SUPPORT ^

Support for this module is provided via the datetime@perl.org email list. See http://lists.perl.org/ for more details.
