NAME

Time::Duration::Parse - Parse string that represents time duration

SYNOPSIS

  use Time::Duration::Parse;

  my $seconds = parse_duration("2 minutes and 3 seconds"); # 123

DESCRIPTION

Time::Duration::Parse is a module to parse human readable duration strings like 2 minutes and 3 seconds to seconds.

It does the opposite of duration_exact function in Time::Duration and is roundtrip safe. So, the following is always true.

  use Time::Duration::Parse;
  use Time::Duration;

  my $seconds = int rand 100000;
  is( parse_duration(duration_exact($seconds)), $seconds );

FUNCTIONS

parse_duration
  $seconds = parse_duration($string);

Parses duration string and returns seconds. When it encounters an error in a given string, it dies an exception saying "Unknown timespec: blah blah blah". This function is exported by default.
