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

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.60, Package name: p5-Date-Manip-6.60, 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:
Updated p5-Date-Manip to 6.58.

VERSION 6.58 2017-03-01 ^

Better support for $mode in DateCalc.

    DateCalc (in DM6) did not support all values for $mode. Now it does.

Bug fixes

    Parsing a date like 01/02/2016 and calling printf with %e gave '02' instead \ 
of ' 2'. RT 119787.

    Fixed a problem where the tzdata method of determining the timezone was \ 
producing an error which wasn't correct. Reported on GitHub by John.

Time zone fixes

    Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2017a)

6.55

       Fixed bug where $::TZ wasn't used
           The $::TZ variable was not getting interpreted correctly when
           searching for a timezone.  RT 114949.

       Fixed bug where recurrences were not parsed correctly
           Passing in incorrect values for a field was not trapped in all
           cases and it led to problems.  All values passed in to a recurrence
           are now correctly checked.  Albert Hilazo

       Fixed a bug in some methods of creating new objects
           Some methods of creating new objects based on existing objects did
           not correctly use the existing object.  Bug has never been
           reported, but was discovered when adding tests to get 100%
           coverage.

       Time zone fixes
           Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2016f)

       Test fixes
           Added a number of new tests based on Devel::Cover.
