=head1 DATETIME::FORMAT DEPENDENCY

There have been no assumptions made as to what RDBMS you will be using. As per 
the note in the L<DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime documentation|DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime/DESCRIPTION>, 
you will need to install the DateTime::Format::* module that matches your RDBMS 
of choice.

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module automatically inflates/deflates DateTime objects from/to epoch
values for the specified columns. This module is essentially an extension to
L<DBIx::Class::InflateColumn::DateTime> so all of the settings, including
C<locale> and C<timezone>, are also valid.

A column will be recognized as an epoch time given one of the following scenarios:

=over 4

=item * C<data_type> is an C<int> of some sort and C<inflate_datetime> is also set to a true value

=item * C<data_type> is some other value (e.g. C<varchar>) and C<inflate_datetime> is explicitly set to C<epoch>.

=back

L<DBIx::Class::TimeStamp> can also be used in conjunction with this module to support
epoch-based columns that are automatically set on creation of a row and updated subsequent
modifications.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 add_columns( )

Provides backwards compatibility with the older DateTime::Epoch API.

=head2 _inflate_to_datetime( )

Overrides column inflation to use C<Datetime-E<gt>from_epoch>.

=head2 _deflate_from_datetime( )

Overrides column deflation to call C<epoch()> on the column value.
