Time::Seconds(3pm)     Perl Programmers Reference Guide     Time::Seconds(3pm)




NAME

       Time::Seconds - a simple API to convert seconds to other date values


SYNOPSIS

           use Time::Piece;
           use Time::Seconds;

           my $t = localtime;
           $t += ONE_DAY;

           my $t2 = localtime;
           my $s = $t - $t2;

           print "Difference is: ", $s->days, "\n";


DESCRIPTION

       This module is part of the Time::Piece distribution. It allows the user
       to find out the number of minutes, hours, days, weeks or years in a
       given number of seconds. It is returned by Time::Piece when you delta
       two Time::Piece objects.

       Time::Seconds also exports the following constants:

           ONE_DAY
           ONE_WEEK
           ONE_HOUR
           ONE_MINUTE
           ONE_MONTH
           ONE_YEAR
           ONE_FINANCIAL_MONTH
           LEAP_YEAR
           NON_LEAP_YEAR

       Since perl does not (yet?) support constant objects, these constants
       are in seconds only, so you cannot, for example, do this: "print
       ONE_WEEK->minutes;"


METHODS

       The following methods are available:

           my $val = Time::Seconds->new(SECONDS)
           $val->seconds;
           $val->minutes;
           $val->hours;
           $val->days;
           $val->weeks;
           $val->months;
           $val->financial_months; # 30 days
           $val->years;
           $val->pretty; # gives English representation of the delta

       The usual arithmetic (+,-,+=,-=) is also available on the objects.

       The methods make the assumption that there are 24 hours in a day, 7
       days in a week, 365.24225 days in a year and 12 months in a year.

Bugs

       Currently the methods aren't as efficient as they could be, for reasons
       of clarity. This is probably a bad idea.
