Rose::DateTime::Parser - DateTime parser object.
$parser = Rose::DateTime::Parser->new(time_zone => 'UTC');
$dt = $parser->parse_date('4/30/2001 8am')
or warn $parser->error;
Rose::DateTime::Parser encapsulates a particular kind of call to Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_date and parse_european_date functions. The object maintains the desired time zone, which is then passed to each call.
This class inherits from, and follows the conventions of, Rose::Object. See the Rose::Object documentation for more information.
Constructs a new Rose::DateTime::Parser object based on PARAMS, where PARAMS are name/value pairs. Any object method is a valid parameter name.
Get or set the error message string.
Get or set a boolean value that controls how the parse_date method will interpret "xx/xx/xxxx" dates: either month/day/year or year/month/day.
If true, then the parse_date method will pass its arguments to Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_european_date function, which interprets such dates as "dd/mm/yyyy".
If false, then the parse_date method will temporarily force non-European date parsing and then call Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_date function, which will interpret the date as "mm/dd/yyyy".
This attribute defaults to the value returned by the Rose::DateTime::Util->european_dates class method called at the time the Rose::DateTime::Parser object is constructed.
If the BOOL argument is undefined (instead of "false, but defined") then the attribute will return to its default value by calling the Rose::DateTime::Util->european_dates class method again. To unambiguously set the attribute to true or false, pass a defined value like 1 or 0.
Attempt to parse STRING by passing it to Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_date or parse_european_date function. The choice is controlled by the european attribute.
If parsing is successful, the resulting DateTime object is returned. Otherwise, error is set and false is returned.
This method is an alias for parse_date()
Attempt to parse STRING by passing it to Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_european_date function (regardless of the value of the european attribute). If parsing is successful, the resulting DateTime object is returned. Otherwise, error is set and false is returned.
Get or set the time zone string passed to Rose::DateTime::Util's parse_date function. Defaults to the value returned by the Rose::DateTime::Util->time_zone class method.
