NAME

DateTime::Format::EMIUCP - Parse time formats for EMI-UCP protocol

SYNOPSIS

  use DateTime::Format::EMIUCP;

  my $scts = DateTime::Format::EMIUCP->parse_datetime('030212065530');
  print $scts->ymd; # 2012-02-03
  print $scts->hms; # 06:55:30

  my $vp = DateTime::Format::EMIUCP->parse_datetime('0302120655');
  print $vp->ymd; # 2012-02-03
  print $vp->hms; # 06:55:00

DESCRIPTION

These formats are part of EMI-UCP protocol message. EMI-UCP protocol is primarily used to connect to short message service centers (SMSCs) for mobile telephones.

SCTS is a string of 12 numeric characters which represents Service Center time-stamp in ddMMyyHHmmss format.

DSCTS is a string of 12 numeric characters which represents Delivery time-stamp in ddMMyyHHmmss format.

DDT is a string of 10 numeric characters which represents deferred delivery time in ddMMyyHHmm format.

VP is a string of 10 numeric characters which represents validity period time in ddMMyyHHmm format.

See EMI-UCP Interface 5.2 Specification for further explanations.

METHODS

DateTime $dt = $fmt->parse_datetime(Str $scts)

Given a string in the pattern specified in the constructor, this method will return a new DateTime object.

Year number below 70 means the date before year 2000.

If given a string that doesn't match the pattern, the formatter will croak.
