Date::Parse - Parse date strings into time values
use Date::Parse; $time = str2time($date); ($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone) = strptime($date);
Date::Parse provides two routines for parsing date strings into time values.
- str2time(DATE [, ZONE])
DATEand returns a unix time value, or undef upon failure.
ZONE, if given, specifies the timezone to assume when parsing if the date string does not specify a timezome.
- strptime(DATE [, ZONE])
strptimetakes the same arguments as str2time but returns an array of values
($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone). Elements are only defined if they could be extracted from the date string. The
$zoneelement is the timezone offset in seconds from GMT. An empty array is returned upon failure.
