DateTime::HiRes - Create DateTime objects with sub-second current time resolution


    use DateTime::HiRes;

    my $dt = DateTime::HiRes->now;


This module enables you to generate DateTime objects that represent the current time with sub-second resolution.


  • now( ... )

    Similar to DateTime->now but uses Time::HiRes::time() instead of Perl's CORE::time() to determine the current time. The returned object will have fractional second information stored as nanoseconds. The sub-second precision of Time::HiRes is highly system dependent and will vary from one platform to the next.

    Just like DateTime->now it accepts "time_zone" and "locale" parameters.


Everyone at the DateTime Asylum.
