MooseX::Types::DateTime::ButMaintained - DateTime related constraints and coercions for Moose



Export Example:

        use MooseX::Types::DateTime::ButMaintained qw(TimeZone);
        has time_zone => (
                        isa  => TimeZone
                        , is => "rw"
                        , coerce => 1
        Class->new( time_zone => "Africa/Timbuktu" );
        Class->new( time_zone => "CEST" );

Namespaced Example:

        use MooseX::Types::DateTime::ButMaintained;
        has time_zone => (
                isa  => DateTime::TimeZone
                , is => "rw"
                , coerce => 1
        Class->new( time_zone => "Africa/Timbuktu" );


DateTime A class type for DateTime.
from Num Uses from_epoch in DateTime. Floating values will be used for subsecond percision, see DateTime for details.
from HashRef Calls new in DateTime with the hash entries as arguments.
Duration A class type for DateTime::Duration
from Num Uses new in DateTime::Duration and passes the number as the seconds argument.

Note that due to leap seconds, DST changes etc this may not do what you expect. For instance passing in 86400 is not always equivalent to one day, although there are that many seconds in a day. See How Date Math is Done in DateTime for more details.

from HashRef Calls new in DateTime::Duration with the hash entries as arguments.
DateTime::Locale A class type for DateTime::Locale::root with the name DateTime::Locale.
from Str The string is treated as a language tag (e.g. en or he_IL) and given to load in DateTime::Locale.
from Locale::Maktext The Locale::Maketext/language_tag attribute will be used with load in DateTime::Locale.
DateTime::TimeZone A class type for DateTime::TimeZone, this now as of 0.05 coerces from non-globally ambigious Olson abbreviations, using Olson::Abbreviations. This won’t work for abbreviations like EST which are only unambigious if you know the locale. It will coerce from abbreviations like CEST though.
from Str Treated as a time zone name or offset. See USAGE in DateTime::TimeZone for more details on the allowed values.

Delegates to new in DateTime::TimeZone with the string as the name argument.

This module packages several Moose::Util::TypeConstraints with coercions, designed to work with the DateTime suite of objects.

This module started as a fork of MooseX::Types::DateTime. This history and explaination is as follows: In Janurary 2009, I began a project to bring DateTime::Format::* stuff up to date with Moose. I created a framework that would greatly eliminate redundant code named DateTimeX::Format. This project’s adoption was slowed by then (and still currently) bundeled <B>packageB> MooseX::Types::DateTime. MooseX::Types::DateTime was a badly packaged extention of two modules the self-titled MooseX::Types::DateTime, and another random module MooseX::Types::DateTimeX. In Februrary of the same year, I repackaged the module MooseX::Types::DateTimeX with the authors blessing into a new package, for the purpose of removing its dependenices, namely Date::Manip, from MooseX::Types::DateTime.

Unfortunately, this just added confusion. Now, as of the time of writing MooseX::Types::DateTimeX is available as a package, and it is available as a module which will be installed by MooseX::Types::DateTime. The benefit of removing the dependency on MooseX::Types::DateTime was never realized and the patch that updates the dependencies, and the build system remains in rt still as of writing.

This module is just the MooseX::Types::DateTime without the requirement on DateTimeX::Easy (which requires DateTime::Manip). As of 0.05 this module supports globally unique Olson abbreviations, and dies when they are not globally unique.
