NAME

Data::Checker::Date - check data to see if it contains a valid date

SYNOPSIS

   use Data::Checker;
   $obj = new Data::Checker;

   $obj->check($data,"Date",$check_opts);

DESCRIPTION

This module is meant to be used by the Data::Checker module.

One set of checks that is often done is to see if a piece of data is a valid date.

This module performs several date releated checks.

FUNCTIONS

check

This is the only function provided by this module, and it is intended to be used by the Data::Checker module.

CHECKS OPTIONS

The $check_opts hashref defines exactly what IP checks to perform, and some options used by those checks. Currently, there are no keys used for date checks.

EXAMPLES

   use Data::Checker;
   $obj = new Data::Checker;

   $data = ...
   $opts = ...

   ($pass,$fail,$info,$warn) = $obj->check($data,"Date",$opts);

The value of $data and $opts is listed below in the examples.

To check that the values are valid dates
   $data = [ 'now', '2016-01-01 12:00:00', 'some-string' ];
   $opts = { }

This yields:

   $pass = [ 'now', '2016-01-01 12:00:00' ];
   $fail = { 'some-string' => 'Not a valid date' }

KNOWN BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
