|Description:||Perl Module to add Date::Manip (6.32-1)|
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. From the very beginning, the main focus of Date::Manip has been to be able to do ANY desired date/time operation easily, not necessarily quickly. Also, it is definitely oriented towards the type of operations we (as people) tend to think of rather than those operations used routinely by computers. There are other modules that can do a subset of the operations available in Date::Manip much quicker than those presented here. As of version 6, a new object-oriented interface has been added, with more power and control than the legacy function interface. But version 6 also requires perl >= 5.10, so be careful to weigh portability vs modernity and power when writing your code. Package includes both versions, auto-selects at runtime based on perl version being used.
