NOTICE ^

This package is private to the Astro::App::Satpass2 package. The author reserves the right to revoke it or change it without notice.

DESCRIPTION ^

This package provides common functionality for strftime-based time formatters. Since the actual implementation may vary, what we really have here is a repository for common formats. These are implemented as manifest constants (i.e. use constant), but are documented below as methods.

MANIFEST CONSTANTS ^

This class supports the following manifest constants, which are all exported by default:

DATE_FORMAT

This manifest constant returns a date format designed to produce a numeric date in the format year-month-day. Since this format is intended to be used with strftime(), it is '%Y-%m-%d'.

FORMAT_TYPE

This manifest constant returns the type of format expected by the formatter. This class returns 'strftime'.

ISO_8601_FORMAT

This manifest constant returns a date format designed to produce a date and time in ISO 8601 format, in the Universal/GMT time zone. Since this format is intended to be used with strftime(), it is '%Y%m%dT%H%M%SZ'.

TIME_FORMAT

This manifest constant returns a date format designed to produce a time in the format hour:minute:second. Since this format is intended to be used with strftime(), it is '%H:%M:%S'.

SUPPORT ^

Support is by the author. Please file bug reports at http://rt.cpan.org, or in electronic mail to the author.
