Manual Reference Pages - TIME::HUMAN (3)
Time::Human - Convert localtime() format to "speaking clock" time
print "The time is now ", humanize(localtime());
This module provides a vague rendering of the time into natural
language; its originally intended for text-to-speech applications
and other speech-based interfaces.
Its fully internationalised: if you look at the code, youll see a
global variable called %Time::Human::templates, which you can fill in
for other languages. If you do multinationalise it, please send me
templates for other languages to be added to future releases. You can
set the default language via the global variable
$Time::Human::Evening and $Time::Human::Night decide the hours
at which afternoon turns to evening and evening turns to night in
your culture. For instance, Greeks may want evening to start at 11pm;
for hackers, evening may start at 3am.
This module accepts no arguments to its import method (actually, it doesnt
even have an import method).
This module exports a single symbols, the humanize function.
Simon Cozens (SIMON) for originally creating this module.
Ricardo SIGNES (RJBS) for being inhumanly patient in waiting for me to apply a
one line whitespace trimming patch.
Everyone at the DateTime Asylum.
