NAME

Date::Gregorian::Exact - abandoned extension of Date::Gregorian

SYNOPSIS

  # do not use Date::Gregorian::Exact;

DESCRIPTION

Date::Gregorian::Exact was a subclass extending Date::Gregorian towards higher precision (sufficient to deal with timestamps).

Due to the simplicity of its data model, however, it never came close to satisfyingly handle real-life timestamps. Therefore it has long been considered deprecated and is now finally abandoned.

Recent versions of the DateTime suite of modules offer a considerably more substantial approach to the intricacies of local clocks and timezones. Please consider using those modules for calculations involving date and time.
