Time::localtime cpan:ELIZABETH last updated on 2019-11-10



Time::localtime - Port of Perl's Time::localtime


use Time::localtime;
printf "Year is %d\n", localtime.year + 1900;

$now = ctime();

use Time::localtime;
$date_string = ctime($file.IO.modified);


This module's default exports a localtime and ctime functions. The localtime function returns a "Time::localtime" object. This object has methods that return the similarly named structure field name from the C's tm structure from time.h; namely sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year, wday, yday, and isdst.

You may also import all the structure fields directly into your namespace as regular variables using the :FIELDS import tag. (Note that this still exports the functions.) Access these fields as variables named with a preceding tm_. Thus, $group_obj.year corresponds to $tm_year if you import the fields.

The ctime function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of the localtime function in Perl.
