NAME

DateTime::Format::W3CDTF - Parse and format W3CDTF datetime strings

SYNOPSIS

  use DateTime::Format::W3CDTF;

  my $f = DateTime::Format::W3CDTF->new;
  my $dt = $f->parse_datetime( '2003-02-15T13:50:05-05:00' );

  # 2003-02-15T13:50:05-05:00
  $f->format_datetime($dt);

DESCRIPTION

This module understands the W3CDTF date/time format, an ISO 8601 profile, defined at http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime. This format as the native date format of RSS 1.0.

It can be used to parse these formats in order to create the appropriate objects.

METHODS

    Given a W3CDTF datetime string, this method will return a new DateTime object.

    If given an improperly formatted string, this method may die.

  • format_datetime($datetime)

    Given a DateTime object, this methods returns a W3CDTF datetime string.
