POSIX::strptime(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   POSIX::strptime(3)

NAME
       POSIX::strptime - Perl extension	to the POSIX date parsing strptime(3)
       function

SYNOPSIS
	($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year,	$wday, $yday, $isdst) =	POSIX::strptime("string", "Format");

DESCRIPTION
       Perl interface to strptime(3)

FUNCTIONS
       strptime
	    ($sec, $min, $hour,	$mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday) = POSIX::strptime(string, format);

	   The result for any value not	extracted is not defined. Some
	   platforms may reliably return "undef", but this is dependent	on the
	   strptime(3) function	in the underlying C library.

	   For example,	only the following fields may be relied	upon:

	    my ($min, $hour) = ( POSIX::strptime( "01:23", '%H:%M' ) )[1,2];

	    my ($mday, $mon, $year) = (	POSIX::strptime( "2010/07/16", '%Y/%m/%d' ) )[3,4,5];

	   Furthermore,	not all	platforms will set the $wday and $yday
	   elements. If	these values are required, use "mktime"	and "gmtime":

	    use	POSIX qw( mktime );
	    use	POSIX::strptime	qw( strptime );

	    my ($mday, $mon, $year) = (	POSIX::strptime( "2010/07/16", '%Y/%m/%d' ) )[3,4,5];
	    my $wday = ( gmtime	mktime 0, 0, 0,	$mday, $mon, $year )[6];
