       DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale::fr -- French
       localization for	the French revolutionary calendar.

	 use DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale;
	 my $french_locale = DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary::Locale->load('fr');

	 my $french_month_name =$french_locale->month_name($date);

       This module provides localization for
       DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary.	 Usually, its methods will be
       invoked only from DT::C::FR.

       This module provides the	following class	methods:

       o   new

	   Returns an  object instance,	 which is just	a convenient value  to
	   be stored in	a variable.

	   Contrary to	the widely used	Gregorian  calendar, there is  no need
	   to customize	a French Revolutionary calendar	locale.	Therefore,
	   there are no	instance data and no instance methods.

       o   month_name ($date)

	   Returns  the	French	name for  $date's month,  where	$date  is a
	   "DateTime::Calendar::FrenchRevolutionary" object.

       o   month_abbreviation ($date)

	   Returns a 3-letter abbreviation for the French month	name.

       o   day_name ($date)

	   Returns the French day name.

       o   day_abbreviation ($date)

	   Returns a 3-letter abbreviation for the French day name.

       o   feast_short ($date)

	   Returns  the	name for  the plant,  animal or	 tool that  correspond
	   to $date's feast.

       o   feast_long ($date)

	   Same	 as  "feast_short", with  a  "jour"  prefix.

       o   feast_caps ($date)

	   Same	as "feast_long"	with capitalized first letters.

       o   on_date ($date)

	   Gives a small text about the	 events	which occurred the same	month
	   and day as $date between the	calendar's epoch (22 Sep 1792) and the
	   day it was rescinded	(31 Dec	1805).

	   Most	of these events	come  from an anonymous	propaganda book
	   published in	year  VIII (1799--1800). The others are	 common
	   knowledge available in any French History book or any encyclopedia.

       Support for this	module is provided via the email
       list. See <> for more details.
