NAME

  y2k - A simple module to detect y2k bugs

SYNOPSIS

        use y2k;

        $year = (localtime)[5];
        print "19$year is a good year to die";
        

DESCRIPTION

Most Y2k bugs written in Perl are typically very easy to catch. This module catches them. The idea is simple, it provides its own loaded versions of localtime() and gmtime() which return trick years. If this year is used in a manner which is not "cross-decade compliant", your program will die with an error.

This is a thin legacy wrapper around D'oh::Year. Use that instead.
