OPTIONS

-from

This option specifies the class to be converted from.

The default is -from=DateTime.

-help

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

-instantiater

This option specifies the name of the method used to instantiate the object to be converted from.

The default is 'new'.

-reverse

If asserted, this Boolean option specifies that a reverse conversion is to be done. It works by swapping the values of the -from and -to options, whether specified or defaulted.

The default is -noreverse.

serializer

This option specifies the name of the method to be used to serialize the object converted to. This method must not take any arguments. If a false value, the object is stringified.

The default is undef.

-to

This option specifies the class to be converted to.

-version

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

DETAILS

This Perl script uses DateTime modules to convert from one calendar to another.

The command-line arguments are passed verbatim to the -from class' new() method. The resultant object is passed to the -to class' from_object() method, and the result of that method is stringified.

By default, this script converts from DateTime to DateTime::Fiction::JRRTolkien::Shire, thus converting the given date from Gregorian to Shire Reckoning.
