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



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

SYNOPSIS
        use Time::localtime;
        printf "Year is %d\n", localtime->year() + 1900;

        $now = ctime();

        use Time::localtime;
        use File::stat;
        $date_string = ctime(stat($file)->mtime);

DESCRIPTION
       This module's default exports override the core localtime() 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 ctime() function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of the original CORE::localtime() 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.
