Data::Sah::Coerce::perl::To_date::From_str::iso8601 - Coerce date from (a subset of) ISO8601 string


This document describes version 0.054 of Data::Sah::Coerce::perl::To_date::From_str::iso8601 (from Perl distribution Data-Sah-Coerce), released on 2023-10-24.


To use in a Sah schema:



This rule coerces date from a subset of ISO8601 string. Currently only the following formats are accepted:

 "YYYY-MM-DD"            ; # date (local time), e.g.: 2016-05-13
 "YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss"   ; # date+time (local time), e.g.: 2016-05-13T22:42:00
 "YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ"  ; # date+time (UTC), e.g.: 2016-05-13T22:42:00Z

 "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss"   ; # date+time (local time), MySQL format, e.g.: 2016-05-13 22:42:00
 "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ssZ"  ; # date+time (UTC), MySQL format, e.g.: 2016-05-13 22:42:00Z

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
