NAME

Acme::Time::Asparagus - Time on the vegetable clock

SYNOPSIS

  use Acme::Time::Asparagus qw(veggietime);
  print veggietime('12:40');

  # In version 1.04, you could ask for a particular language, which
  # seemed like a good idea at the time, but was very restricting
  print veggietime('5:07', 'en_GB');
  # Note that this will generate a warning. So you probably don't want
  # to do this. But I didn't want to screw people up too badly.

DESCRIPTION

"And now it's time for silly songs with Larry."

Figures out time on the vegetable clock. See http://www.DrBacchus.com/images/clock.jpg See also the README for a URL for a Sushi clock.

BUGS/ToDo

I suppose one could consider the very existence of this module to be a bug. Also, I have never been quite sure if that thing was a brussels sprout or a cauliflower.

The input checking could probably be improved.

Some way to convert back to "real" time from vegetable notation.

SUPPORT

You're kidding, right? Stop being so silly!

Kudos to Kate L Pugh for submitting a patch, and demonstrating that there are other people in the world as silly as I am. That stuff has now been moved out into Acme::Time::Aubergine.

See also Acme::Time::FooClock for more information.
