Time::localtime(3)     Perl Programmers	Reference Guide	    Time::localtime(3)

NAME
       Time::localtime - by-name interface to Perl's built-in localtime()
       function

SYNOPSIS
	use Time::localtime;
	printf "Year is	%d\n", localtime->year() + 1900;

	$now = ctime();

	use Time::localtime;
	use File::stat;
	$date_string = ctime(stat($file)->mtime);

DESCRIPTION
       This module's default exports override the core localtime() function,
       replacing it with a version that	returns	"Time::tm" objects.  This
       object has methods that return the similarly named structure field name
       from the	C's tm structure from time.h; namely sec, min, hour, mday,
       mon, year, wday,	yday, and isdst.

       You may also import all the structure fields directly into your
       namespace as regular variables using the	:FIELDS	import tag.  (Note
       that this still overrides your core functions.)	Access these fields as
       variables named with a preceding	"tm_" in front their method names.
       Thus, "$tm_obj->mday()" corresponds to $tm_mday if you import the
       fields.

       The ctime() function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of
       the original CORE::localtime() function.

       To access this functionality without the	core overrides,	pass the "use"
       an empty	import list, and then access function functions	with their
       full qualified names.  On the other hand, the built-ins are still
       available via the "CORE::" pseudo-package.

NOTE
       While this class	is currently implemented using the Class::Struct
       module to build a struct-like class, you	shouldn't rely upon this.
