SYNOPSIS

 use Date::Format::ISO8601 qw(
     gmtime_to_iso8601_date
     gmtime_to_iso8601_time

 );

 my $timestamp      = 1529780523    ; # Sat Jun 23 19:02:03 2018 GMT
 my $timestamp_frac = 1529780523.456; # Sat Jun 23 19:02:03 2018 GMT

Assuming local timezone is UTC+7.

Formatting dates:

 say localtime_to_iso8601_date($timestamp);   # => 2018-06-24

Formatting times:

 say gmtime_to_iso8601_time   ($timestamp);            # => 19:02:03Z
 say gmtime_to_iso8601_time   ({tz=>''}, $timestamp);  # => 19:02:03
 say gmtime_to_iso8601_time   ({second_precision=>3}, $timestamp_frac);
                                                       # => 19:02:03.456Z
 say localtime_to_iso8601_time($timestamp);            # => 00:02:03
 say localtime_to_iso8601_time({tz=>'+07:00'}, $timestamp);
                                                       # => 00:02:03+07:00

Formatting date+time:

 say gmtime_to_iso8601_datetime   ($timestamp);        # => 2018-06-23T19:02:03Z
 say gmtime_to_iso8601_datetime   ({tz=>''}, $timestamp);
                                                       # => 2018-06-23T19:02:03
 say gmtime_to_iso8601_datetime   ({second_precision=>3}, $timestamp_frac);
                                                       # => 2018-06-23T19:02:03.456Z
 say localtime_to_iso8601_datetime($timestamp);        # => 2018-06-24T00:02:03
 say localtime_to_iso8601_datetime({tz=>'+07:00'}, $timestamp);
                                                       # => 2018-06-24T00:02:03+07:00

DESCRIPTION

This module formats Unix timestamps (epochs) as ISO8601 date/time strings. It is a lightweight alternative to DateTime::Format::ISO8601::Format and DateTime::Format::ISO8601.
