NAME
       Time::Human - Convert localtime() format	to "speaking clock" time

SYNOPSIS
	 use Time::Human;
	 print "The time is now	", humanize(localtime());

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides a "vague" rendering	of the time into natural
       language; it's originally intended for text-to-speech applications and
       other speech-based interfaces.

       It's fully internationalised: if	you look at the	code, you'll see a
       global variable called %Time::Human::templates, which you can fill in
       for other languages. If you do multinationalise it, please send me
       templates for other languages to	be added to future releases. You can
       set the default language	via the	global variable	$Time::Human::Language

       $Time::Human::Evening and $Time::Human::Night decide the	hours at which
       afternoon turns to evening and evening turns to night in	your culture.
       For instance, Greeks may	want evening to	start at 11pm; for hackers,
       evening may start at 3am.

USAGE
   Import Parameters
       This module accepts no arguments	to it's	"import" method	(actually, it
       doesn't
	       even have an import "method").

   Exports
       This module exports a single symbols, the "humanize" function.

CREDITS
       Simon Cozens (SIMON) for	originally creating this module.

       Ricardo SIGNES (RJBS) for being inhumanly patient in waiting for	me to
       apply a one line	whitespace trimming patch.

       Everyone	at the DateTime	"Asylum".

SUPPORT
       Support for this	module is provided via the datetime@perl.org email
       list. See http://lists.perl.org/	for more details
