NAME

POSIX::strptime - Perl extension to the POSIX date parsing strptime(3) function

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 ($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) = POSIX::strptime("string", "Format");



DESCRIPTION

Perl interface to strptime(3)

FUNCTIONS

strptime


 ($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday) = POSIX::strptime(string, format);



The result for any value not extracted is not defined. Some platforms may reliably return undef, but this is dependent on the strptime(3) function in the underlying C library.

For example, only the following fields may be relied upon:



 my ($min, $hour) = ( POSIX::strptime( "01:23", %H:%M ) )[1,2];

 my ($mday, $mon, $year) = ( POSIX::strptime( "2010/07/16", %Y/%m/%d ) )[3,4,5];



Furthermore, not all platforms will set the $wday and $yday elements. If these values are required, use mktime and gmtime:



 use POSIX qw( mktime );
 use POSIX::strptime qw( strptime );

 my ($mday, $mon, $year) = ( POSIX::strptime( "2010/07/16", %Y/%m/%d ) )[3,4,5];
 my $wday = ( gmtime mktime 0, 0, 0, $mday, $mon, $year )[6];
