Time::gmtime(3)        Perl Programmers Reference Guide        Time::gmtime(3)



NAME
       Time::gmtime - by-name interface to Perl's built-in gmtime() function

SYNOPSIS
        use Time::gmtime;
        $gm = gmtime();
        printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n",
           (qw(Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun))[ gm->wday() ];

        use Time::gmtime w(:FIELDS;
        printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n",
           (qw(Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun))[ gm_wday() ];

        $now = gmctime();

        use Time::gmtime;
        use File::stat;
        $date_string = gmctime(stat($file)->mtime);

DESCRIPTION
       This module's default exports override the core gmtime() function, replacing it with a version that returns
       "Time::tm" objects.  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 overrides your core functions.)  Access these fields as variables
       named with a preceding "tm_" in front their method names.  Thus, "$tm_obj->mday()" corresponds to $tm_mday if
       you import the fields.

       The gmctime() function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of the original CORE::gmtime() function.

       To access this functionality without the core overrides, pass the "use" an empty import list, and then access
       function functions with their full qualified names.  On the other hand, the built-ins are still available via
       the "CORE::" pseudo-package.

NOTE
       While this class is currently implemented using the Class::Struct module to build a struct-like class, you
       shouldn't rely upon this.
