DESCRIPTION

In its current, primitive form, this module provides a simple way to get information on Czech Republic bank holidays. The information it provides was current at the time the module was written (c. 2013).

Someday, it would nice to develop the module into conformity with the Date::Holidays paradigm -- i.e. into an "OOP Adapter". First, though, I will have to figure out what an "OOP Adapter" is!

DEPENDENCIES

Date::Holidays::CZ depends on the following two modules:

  • Date::Simple

  • Date::Easter

  • is_cz_holiday

  • cz_holidays

CONSTANTS

The Czech holiday names are stored within the Date::Holidays::CZ module source code in private variables. Since these variables are never changed, they can be thought of as constants.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

is_cz_holiday

Takes three named arguments:

  • year, four-digit number

  • month, 1-12, two-digit number

  • day, 1-31, two-digit number

cz_holidays

Takes one to three arguments: year (four-digit number), month (1-12, two-digit number), and day (1-31, two-digit number). Returns a reference to a hash in which the keys are 'MMDD' (month and day, concatenated) and the values are the names of all the various bank holidays that fall within the year, month, or day indicated by the arguments.
