=head1 NAME

Rose::DateTime - DateTime helper functions and objects.


    use Rose::DateTime::Util qw(:all);

    $now  = parse_date('now');
    $then = parse_date('12/25/2001 6pm');

    $date_text = format_date($then, "%D at %T %p");


    use Rose::DateTime::Parser;

    $parser = Rose::DateTime::Parser->new(time_zone => 'UTC');

    $date = $parser->parse_date('12/25/1999');


The C<Rose::DateTime::*> modules provide a few convenience functions and objects for use with C<DateTime> dates.

L<Rose::DateTime::Util> contains a simple date parser and a slightly customized date formatter.

L<Rose::DateTime::Parser> encapsulates a date parser with an associated default time zone.

This module (C<Rose::DateTime>) exists mostly to provide a version number for CPAN.  See the individual modules for some actual documentation.
