NAME

Email::Date::Format - produce RFC 2822 date strings

VERSION

version 1.004

SYNOPSIS

  use Email::Date::Format qw(email_date);
  
  my $header = email_date($date->epoch);
  
  Email::Simple->create(
    header => [
      Date => $header,
    ],
    body => '...',
  );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple means for generating an RFC 2822 compliant datetime string. (In case you care, they're not RFC 822 dates, because they use a four digit year, which is not allowed in RFC 822.)

FUNCTIONS

email_date

  my $date = email_date; # now
  my $date = email_date( time - 60*60 ); # one hour ago

email_date accepts an epoch value, such as the one returned by time. It returns a string representing the date and time of the input, as specified in RFC 2822. If no input value is provided, the current value of time is used.

format_date is exported only if requested.

email_gmdate

  my $date = email_gmdate;

email_gmdate is identical to email_date, but it will return a string indicating the time in Greenwich Mean Time, rather than local time.

format_gmdate is exported only if requested.
