NAME

BSON::Timestamp - BSON type wrapper for timestamps

VERSION

version v1.0.0

SYNOPSIS

    use BSON::Types ':all';

    bson_timestamp( $seconds );
    bson_timestamp( $seconds, $increment );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a BSON type wrapper for a BSON timestamp value.

Generally, it should not be used by end-users, but is provided for backwards compatibility.

ATTRIBUTES

seconds

A value representing seconds since the Unix epoch. The default is current value of time().

increment

A numeric value to disambiguate timestamps in the same second. The default is 0.

METHODS

TO_JSON

If the BSON_EXTJSON option is true, returns a hashref compatible with MongoDB's extended JSON format, which represents it as a document as follows:

    {"$timestamp" : { "t":<seconds>, "i":<increment> }}

If the BSON_EXTJSON option is false, an error is thrown, as this value can't otherwise be represented in JSON.
