NAME ^

Time::Piece::MSSQL - MSSQL-specific methods for Time::Piece

VERSION ^

version 0.022

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Time::Piece::MSSQL;

 my $time = localtime;

 print $time->mssql_datetime;
 print $time->mssql_smalldatetime;

 my $time = Time::Piece->from_mssql_datetime( $mssql_datetime );
 my $time = Time::Piece->from_mssql_smalldatetime( $mssql_smalldatetime );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module adds functionality to Time::Piece, providing methods useful for using the object in conjunction with a Microsoft SQL database connection. It will produce and parse MSSQL's default-format datetime values.

METHODS ^

mssql_datetime

mssql_smalldatetime

These methods return the Time::Piece object, formatted in the default notation for the correct MSSQL datatype.

from_mssql_datetime

  my $time = Time::Piece->from_mssql_datetime($timestring);

from_mssql_smalldatetime

  my $time = Time::Piece->from_mssql_smalldatetime($timestring);

These methods construct new Time::Piece objects from the given strings, which must be in the default MSSQL format for the correct datatype. If the string is empty, undefined, or unparseable, undef is returned.

FINAL THOUGHTS ^

This module saves less time than Time::Piece::MySQL, because there are fewer strange quirks to account for, but it becomes useful when tied to autoinflation of datatypes in Class::DBI::MSSQL.
