This option specifies the format string to use in generating the output.

The default is '%Ex%n%En%Ed', which produces output like on_date().


This option displays the documentation for this script. The script then exits.


If this option is asserted, the arguments are dates in the Shire calendar: either year, month, and day numbers, or year and holiday numbers.

The default is -noshire, which causes the arguments to be interpreted as Gregorian year, month and day numbers.


This option displays the version of this script. The script then exits.


This Perl script calls the Date::Tolkien::Shire strftime() method to format and print the Shire Reckoning equivalent to a Gregorian date specified on the command line. The default is the current local date.
