Please send questions or bug reports to me rather than posting them to
a newsgroup since I may miss them there, BUT read the next paragraph
before you automatically start firing off email to me!

If you have questions about Date::Manip, refer to the Date::Manip manual.
Don't know what I'm talking about, or don't know how to access that?  Read
the perlpod man page.  Alternately, an online version of the Date::Manip
manual page is included on any CPAN site.

PLEASE read the man page thoroughly before emailing me.  If you've done
this, I'll be glad to answer any questions not covered or that are unclear
in the manual.

Date::Manip 6.xx represents a complete reorganization (and almost complete
rewrite) of the module. It includes the original functional Date::Manip
module, and a number of OO modules which now do the real work. The OO
modules may also be used directly, bypassing the functional interface.

As of 6.xx, Date::Manip has full support for all timezones in the standard
Olsen database (and also supports all Windows timezone names, and timezones
suggested by several other standards). Full support for daylight saving
time is included.

Please refer to the Date::Manip::Changes5to6 and Date::Manip::Migration5to6
man pages for a more detailed breakdown of changes made in 6.00, and
suggestions for a few changes which may be required to get existing code
to run using the new modules.

It should be noted that version 6.xx required perl 5.10 or higher.

Date::Manip 5.xx is integrated into the package (i.e. both 5.xx and 6.xx
are available in the 6.xx release), so Date::Manip will continue to run
(the old version only) on older versions of perl. Please refer to the
main Date::Manip document for more details.
