NAME

Date::Lectionary::Time - Find your way in time relative to Sundays.

VERSION

Version 1.20170311

SYNOPSIS

Working in the liturgical time of the lectionary means tracking time relative to Sundays. This is a quick utility to find the next, previous, or the closest Sunday to a given date. Further, it can determine if the date given is a Sunday or not.

        use Time::Piece;
        use Date::Lectionary::Time qw(nextSunday prevSunday closestSunday isSunday);

        my $christmasDay = Time::Piece->strptime("2015-12-25", "%Y-%m-%d");

    if (isSunday($christmasDay)) {
        say "Christmas is on a Sunday!";
    }
    else {
        say "Christmas isn't on a Sunday.";
    }

        my $sundayAfterChristmas = nextSunday($christmasDay);
        my $sundayBeforeChristmas = prevSunday($christmasDay);
        my $sundayClosestToChristmas = closestSunday($christmasDay);
