Time::gmtime - Port of Perl 5's Time::gmtime
use Time::gmtime; $gm = gmtime; printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n", <Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun>[ $gm.wday ]; use Time::gmtime :FIELDS; gmtime; printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n", <Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun>[ $tm_wday ]; $now = gmctime(); use Time::gmtime; $date_string = gmctime($file.IO.modified);
This module's default exports a
gmctime functions. The
gmtime function returns a "Time::gmtime" 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.
gmctime function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of the
gmtime function in Perl 5.
