NAME

Date::Calendar::Strftime - formatting any Date object or any Date::Calendar::whatever object with 'strftime'

SYNOPSIS

Using the core class Date:

use Date::Calendar::Strftime;
my Date $last-day .= new(2019, 12, 31);
$last-day does Date::Calendar::Strftime;
say $last-day.strftime("%Y-%m-%d ('ISO' date %G-W%V-%u)");
# --> 2019-12-31 ('ISO' date 2020-W01-2)

Using a Date::Calendar::xxx class (here, the French Revolutionary one):

use Date::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary;
my Date::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary $Bonaparte's-coup-fr;
$Bonaparte's-coup-fr .= new(year => 8, month => 2, day => 18);

say $Bonaparte's-coup-fr.strftime("%Y-%m-%d");
# ---> "0008-02-18" for 18 Brumaire VIII

say $Bonaparte's-coup-fr.strftime("%A %e %B %EY");
# ---> "octidi 18 Brumaire VIII"

INSTALLATION

zef install Date::Calendar::Strftime

or

git clone https://github.com/jforget/raku-Date-Calendar-Strftime.git
cd raku-Date-Calendar-Strftime
zef install .

DESCRIPTION

Date::Calendar::Strftime is a role providing a strftime method to format a string representing the date. This method is similar to the strftime function in C.

The synopsis above shows examples with the standard class Date and with the class Date::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary, but Date::Calendar::Strftime can be used with any Date::Calendar::xxxx class which implements the attributes "year", "month" and "day". It can be used with a little more effort with more esoteric Date::Calendar::xxxx classes.
