NAME ^

DateTime::Format::Strptime - Parse and format strp and strf time patterns

SYNOPSIS ^

  use DateTime::Format::Strptime;

  my $Strp = new DateTime::Format::Strptime(
                                pattern     => '%T',
                                locale      => 'en_AU',
                                time_zone   => 'Australia/Melbourne',
                        );

  my $dt = $Strp->parse_datetime('23:16:42');

  $Strp->format_datetime($dt);
        # 23:16:42



  # Croak when things go wrong:
  my $Strp = new DateTime::Format::Strptime(
                                pattern         => '%T',
                                locale      => 'en_AU',
                                time_zone       => 'Australia/Melbourne',
                                on_error        => 'croak',
                        );

  $newpattern = $Strp->pattern('%Q');
  # Unidentified token in pattern: %Q in %Q at line 34 of script.pl

  # Do something else when things go wrong:
  my $Strp = new DateTime::Format::Strptime(
                                pattern         => '%T',
                                locale      => 'en_AU',

                        );

DESCRIPTION ^
