Email::Date::Format(3)User Contributed Perl DocumentatioEmail::Date::Format(3)

NAME
       Email::Date::Format - produce RFC 2822 date strings

VERSION
       version 1.005

SYNOPSIS
	 use Email::Date::Format qw(email_date);

	 my $header = email_date($date->epoch);

	 Email::Simple->create(
	   header => [
	     Date => $header,
	   ],
	   body	=> '...',
	 );

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides a simple means for generating an RFC 2822
       compliant datetime string.  (In case you	care, they're not RFC 822
       dates, because they use a four digit year, which	is not allowed in RFC
       822.)

FUNCTIONS
   email_date
	 my $date = email_date;	# now
	 my $date = email_date(	time - 60*60 );	# one hour ago

       "email_date" accepts an epoch value, such as the	one returned by
       "time".	It returns a string representing the date and time of the
       input, as specified in RFC 2822.	If no input value is provided, the
       current value of	"time" is used.

       "email_date" is exported	only if	requested.

   email_gmdate
	 my $date = email_gmdate;

       "email_gmdate" is identical to "email_date", but	it will	return a
       string indicating the time in Greenwich Mean Time, rather than local
       time.

       "email_gmdate" is exported only if requested.
