CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

  my $strptime = oracle2posix($NLS_DATE_FORMAT);
  $NLS_DATE_FORMAT = posix2oracle($strftime);



DESCRIPTION

Convert Oracle’s NLS_DATE_FORMAT string into a strptime format string, or the reverse.

    Functions

oracle2posix Takes an Oracle NLS_DATE_FORMAT string and converts it into formatting string compatible with strftime or strptime.



  my $format = oracle2posix(YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS); # %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S



Character sequences that should not be translated may be enclosed within double quotes, as specified in the Oracle documentation.



  my $format = oracle2posix(YYYY-MM-DD"T"HH24:MI:SS); # %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S



posix2oracle Takes a strftime or strptime formatting string and converts it into an Oracle NLS_DATE_FORMAT string. It is possible to create strings which Oracle will not accept as valid NLS_DATE_FORMAT strings.



  my $format = posix2oracle(%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S); # YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS
