Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime::ISO8601 - Astro::App::Satpass2 minimal ISO-8601 parser


No user-serviceable parts inside.


This class parses ISO-8601 dates. It does not do ordinal days or weeks, but it is rather permissive on punctuation, and permits the convenience dates 'yesterday', 'today', and 'tomorrow'.

This class understands ISO-8601 time zone specifications of the form 'Z', 'UT', 'GMT' and [+-]\d{1,2}:?\d{,2}, but it knows nothing about shifts for summer time. So 2009/7/1 12:00:00 -5 is 5:00 PM GMT, not 4:00 PM. An attempt to set any other time zone will result in a warning, and the system default zone being used.


This class supports no public methods over and above those documented in its superclass Astro::App::Satpass2::ParseTime.


Support is by the author. Please file bug reports at, or in electronic mail to the author.
