NAME

Acme::Current::Forever - Acme::Current workalike that doesn't require you to update every bloody day

SYNOPSIS

  use Acme::Current;
  printf "It's now %04d/%02d/%02d.\n",
    $Acme::Current::YEAR,
    $Acme::Current::MONTH,
    $Acme::Current::DAY;
  if ($Acme::Current::MONTH == 12 and $Acme::Current::DAY == 25) {
    print "Merry Christmas!\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION

This module replaces Randal L Schwartz' Acme::Current with a module with an identical API that never needs updating.

Acme::Current gives you all the power of those myriad of date/time modules without all that complexity, as long as all you want is the current date (GMT-based), and you keep the module up to date.

EXPORT

Nothing. You need to use $Acme::Current::YEAR to get the year, and so on.

BUGS

None known.

SEE ALSO

Date::Manip, and a hundred other date and time modules.
