NAME

Date::LibICal - Perl wrapper for libical

SYNOPSIS

  use Date::LibICal;

  my @all_timeslots_in_epoch = Date::LibICal::expand_recurrence(
      'FREQ=MONTHLY;UNTIL=20130131T000000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=MO',
  );

alternatively with a fixed start Date

  use Date::LibICal;
  use Date::Time;

  my @timeslots_in_epoch = Date::LibICal::expand_recurrence(
      'FREQ=MONTHLY;UNTIL=20130131T000000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=MO',
      DateTime->new( year => 2012, month => 1, day => 1)->epoch,
  );

or with a fixed start Date and a max count of results:

  use Date::LibICal;
  use Date::Time;

  my @timeslots_in_epoch = Date::LibICal::expand_recurrence(
      'FREQ=MONTHLY;UNTIL=20130131T000000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=MO',
      DateTime->new( year => 2012, month => 1, day => 1)->epoch,
      10,
  );

To convert any of the results into something useful you can

  use DateTime;

  print
      join "\n",
      map {
          DateTime->from_epoch( epoch => $_ );
      } @timeslots_in_epoch;

DESCRIPTION

Date::LibICal is a non-complete interface for libical. Currently it is only useful to convert implicit icals into a list of explicit timeslots.

EXPORT

None by default.

Exportable methods are: expand_recurrence.

DEPENDENCIES
