NAME

HTML::CalendarMonth::Locale - Front end class for DateTime::Locale

SYNOPSIS

  use HTML::CalendarMonth::Locale;

  my $loc = HTML::CalendarMonth::Locale->new( id => 'en_US' );

  # list of days of the week for locale
  my @days = $loc->days;

  # list of months of the year for locale
  my @months = $loc->months;

  # the name of the current locale, as supplied the id parameter to
  # new()
  my $locale_name = $loc->id;

  # the actual DateTime::Locale object
  my $loc = $loc->loc;

  1;

DESCRIPTION

HTML::CalendarMonth utilizes the powerful locale capabilities of DateTime::Locale for rendering its calendars. The default locale is 'en_US' but many others are available. To see this list, invoke the class method HTML::CalendarMonth::Locale->locales() which in turn invokes DateTime::Locale::ids().

This module is mostly intended for internal usage within HTML::CalendarMonth, but some of its functionality may be of use for developers:

METHODS

new()

Constructor. Takes the following parameters:

id

Locale id, e.g. 'en_US'.

full_days

Specifies whether full day names or their abbreviations are desired. Default 0, use abbreviated days.

full_months

Specifies whether full month names or their abbreviations are desired. Default 1, use full months.

id()

Returns the locale id used during object construction.

locale()

Accessor method for the DateTime::Locale class, which in turn offers several class methods of specific interest. See DateTime::Locale.

locale_map()

Returns a hash of all available locales, mapping their id to their full name.

loc()

Accessor method for the DateTime::Locale instance as specified by id. See DateTime::Locale.

locales()

Lists all available locale ids. Equivalent to locale()->ids(), or DateTime::Locale->ids().

days()

Returns a list of days of the week, Sunday first. These are the actual unique day strings used for rendering calendars, so depending on which attributes were provided to new(), this list will either be abbreviations or full names. The default uses abbreviated day names. Returns a list in list context or an array ref in scalar context.

narrow_days()

Returns a list of short day abbreviations, beginning with Sunday. The narrow abbreviations are not guaranteed to be unique (i.e. 'S' for both Sat and Sun).

days_minmatch()

Provides a hash reference containing minimal case-insensitive match strings for each day of the week, e.g., 'sa' for Saturday, 'm' for Monday, etc.

months()

Returns a list of months of the year, beginning with January. Depending on which attributes were provided to new(), this list will either be full names or abbreviations. The default uses full names. Returns a list in list context or an array ref in scalar context.

narrow_months()

Returns a list of short month abbreviations, beginning with January. The narrow abbreviations are not guaranteed to be unique.

months_minmatch()

Provides a hash reference containing minimal case-insensitive match strings for each month of the year, e.g., 'n' for November, 'ja' for January, 'jul' for July, 'jun' for June, etc.

daynums()

Provides a hash reference containing day of week indices for each fully qualified day name as returned by days().

daynum($day)

Provides the day of week index for a particular day name.

dayname($day)

Provides the fully qualified day name for a given string or day index.

monthnums()

Provides a hash reference containing month of year indices for each fully qualified month name as returned by months().

monthnum($month)

Provides the month of year index for a particular month name.

monthname($month)

Provides the month name for a given string or month index.

minmatch_hash(@list)

This is the method used to generate the case-insensitive minimal match hash referenced above. Given an arbitrary list, a hash reference will be returned with minimal match strings as keys and the original strings as values.

lc_minmatch_hash(@list)

Same as minmatch_hash, except keys are forced to lower case.

first_day_of_week()

Returns a number from 0 to 6 representing the first day of the week for this locale, where 0 represents Sunday.
