Data::ICal::Entry::Event - Represents an event in an iCalendar file
my $vevent = Data::ICal::Entry::Event->new();
summary => "my party",
description => "I'll cry if I want to",
# Dat*e*::ICal is not a typo here
dtstart => Date::ICal->new( epoch => time )->ical,
A Data::ICal::Entry::Event object represents a single event in an iCalendar file. (Note that the iCalendar RFC refers to entries as "components".) It is a subclass of Data::ICal::Entry and accepts all of its methods.
Returns VEVENT, its iCalendar entry name.
The uid property is mandatory if rfc_strict was passed to "new" in Data::ICal.
According to the iCalendar standard, the following properties may be specified at most one time for an event:
class created description dtstart geo
last-modified location organizer priority
dtstamp sequence status summary transp
uid url recurrence-id
In addition, dtend and duration may be specified at most once each, but not both in the same entry (though this restriction is not enforced).
Or if vcal10 => 1:
vcal10 => 1
class dcreated completed description dtstart dtend
last-modified location rnum priority
sequence status summary transp
According to the iCalendar standard, the following properties may be specified any number of times for an event:
attach attendee categories comment
contact exdate exrule request-status related-to
resources rdate rrule
aalarm attach attendee categories
dalarm exdate exrule malarm palarm related-to
resources rdate rrule
For date parsing and formatting, including denoting "all day" events, considering using this module. Because it's a "mix in", you can still use all the methods here as well as the new date handling methods it defines.
