./devel/p5-Date-Manip, Perl5 module for date calculations

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.77nb1, Package name: p5-Date-Manip-6.77nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a set of routines designed to make any common date/time
manipulation easy to do. Operations such as comparing two times,
calculating a time a given amount of time from another, or parsing
international times are all easily done.

Date::Manip deals only with the Gregorian calendar (the one currently in
use). The Julian calendar defined leap years as every 4th year. The
Gregorian calendar improved this by making every 100th year NOT a leap
year, unless it was also the 400th year. The Gregorian calendar has been
extrapolated back to the year 1000 AD and forward to the year 9999 AD.
Note that in historical context, the Julian calendar was in use until 1582
when the Gregorian calendar was adopted by the Catholic church. Protestant
countries did not accept it until later; Germany and Netherlands in 1698,
British Empire in 1752, Russia in 1918. Note that the Gregorian calendar
is itself imperfect. Each year is on average 26 seconds too long, which
means that every 3,323 years, a day should be removed from the calendar.
No attempt is made to correct for that.

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.

  -  Fixed bug in Date::Manip::Date::list_holidays.
        It was using 'now' instead of the stored date. Douglas DeStafeno

  -  Reordered TZ detection methods
        Moved checking the tzdata files to lower priority to avoid a pretty
        unusual situation in docker. Sven Nierlein (GitHub #20)

  -  Time zone fixes
        Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2018i). Requested by Shawn C Carroll
        (GitHub #28)

  -  Removed travis file from the tarball
        The tarball had a .travis.yml file in it that wasn't in the MANIFEST
        file. Since the MANIFEST file is automatically generated by the perl
        mkmanifest tool, since it didn't see the .travis.yml file, I have
        excluded it from the tarball. Reported by Mohammad S Anwar on GitHub
        (#23)

  -  Time zone fixes
        Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2018e)

Log message:
p5-Date-Manip: update to 6.73.

6.73  2018-09-01
  -  Fixed math on non-64-bit architectures
        Much of the math in Date::Manip::Base is in a 'use integer' section.
        This math can overflow in some cases in non-64-bit architectures.
        Fixed the cases where this would reasonably occur. Reported by
        Daniel Albers (GitHub #22). Also reported and tested in RT 126052.

  -  Bug in normalizing estimated business deltas
        While working on the non-64-bit issue, it uncovered a bug where
        normalizing estimated business deltas was wrong. It had never been
        reported, and it was only off by a couple seconds in some rare
        situations.

Log message:
Update to 6.72

Upstream changes:
6.72  2018-06-06
  -  Fixed recurrence bug
        The fix in the previous version for a rare recurrence problem broke
        another recurrence form. It is now corrected. Michael Schout (GitHub
        #20)

  -  Fixed version problem
        The wrong version was included in two files for some reason. This is
        fixed.

  -  Documentation fixes
        Fixed a grammatical error reported by Xavier Guimard (GitHub #19).

6.71  2018-06-01
  -  Fixed an extremely rare problem with recurrences
        It is possible to specify a recurrence that never produces a valid
        date. In these cases, looking for dates went into an infinite loop.
        The MaxRecurAttempts config variable was added which will stop that
        from happening. If no occurrence was found, an error condition will
        be set. Dean Hamstead (RT 123708)

  -  Changes file supported
        It was requested that I include a valid Changes file. I wrote a
        simple script to convert the Change6.pod file into a valid Change
        file. The Changes6.pod file is still the canonical source of this
        information! Requested by H. Merijn Brand

  -  Fix for timezone determination
        On MacOS X High Sierra, some of the timezone files were symlinks,
        but not properly followed. This was fixed by Stu Tomlinson (GitHub
        #15).

  -  Time zone fixes
        Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2018e)

  -  Documentation fixes
        Minor fix provided by Mohammad S Anwar (GitHub #17)
