       Date::Manip::Changes6 - changes in Date::Manip 6.xx

       This describes the changes made to the Date::Manip module in the 6.xx series of releases.
       Major changes are marked with asterisks (*).

       For the most part, Date::Manip has remained backward compatible at every release, but
       occasionally, a change is made which is backward incompatible. These are marked with an
       exclamation mark (!).

VERSION 6.41  (2013-09-05)
       Bug fixes
	   Removed a .swp file accidentally left in the package.  RT 85845

	   Fixed a bug in parse_format where times between 00:00:00 and 01:00:00 weren't parsed
	   correctly.  Ole Nomann Thomsen

	   Fixed generated META.* files to not require Module::Build 0.39.  RT 86137

	   Fixed a bug where parse_format did not work with a '%s' format.  RT 87498

	   Fixed a bug where find_encoding wasn't imported from the Encode module.  RT 87665

	   Fixed a bug where recurrences with no interval did not work if a start and end date
	   were specified, and no dates fell in that range.  Jan Pradac

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2013d)

VERSION 6.40  (2013-06-01)
       Removed PODs
	   POD documentation is no longer generated for Date::Manip::TZ::* and
	   Date::Manip::Offset::* modules.

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2013c)

VERSION 6.39  (2013-03-01)
       Added the $mode argument to ParseDateDelta
	   The ParseDateDelta function (in functional interface) did not allow you to force a
	   parsed delta to semi or approx where appropriate.  This was added.  Based on RT

       Added get_config method
	   The get_config method was added to all classes.  Suggested by Philippe Poilbarbe.

       Language fixes
	   Fixed a German language problem.  Gosta Oelstrom

       Documentation fixes
	   Documented workaround for dmake problem in strawberry perl.	Discussed on perlmonks
	   and RT 79837.

	   Clarified the Examples page.  Winston Heng

VERSION 6.38  (2013-01-08)
       (*) Tar file format corrected
	   Problems were reported on several OSes by people unable to install Date::Manip (and
	   other modules).  It turns out that the version of tar distributed by my linux distro
	   (OpenSuSE) uses the 'posix' format instead of the traditional 'gnu' format by default.
	   This causes problems for some versions of tar.  I have had reports from OSX, Windows,
	   and SunOS.  Future versions of Date::Manip will be explicitly distributed in the 'gnu'
	   tar archive format.

	   Reported by Jay Allen and RT 80594.

       (*) Date::Manip 5.xx end-of-life
	   Date::Manip 5.xx is now officially out of support.  I will not be doing any further
	   work on it.	The only exception is that I will consider adding user supplied patches
	   on a case-by-case basis.

	   If at all possible, please use Date::Manip 6.xx instead.

       (!) Removed some deprecated config variables
	   The following config variables have been removed.


VERSION 6.37  (2012-12-01)
       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where ISO 8601 format YYYY-WXX-D didn't work if the week ended up in
	   December.  Gordon Lugauer.

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2012j)

       Documentation fixes
	   Spelling error fixed.  RT 80621

VERSION 6.36  (2012-10-31)
       This was an interim release to fix the version numbers (6.35 was released with all of the
       version numbers 6.34).

VERSION 6.35  (2012-10-31)
       This was an interim release to fix the problem with the PATH being replaced.

       Removed dependency on YAML
	   I've reverted the language data files to perl literals instead of YAML.  Though not
	   quite as easy to maintain, it solves a few problems.  Patch provided by Christopher

       Bug fixes
	   Last versions fix for RT 78566 overrode the PATH even when that wasn't appropriate.
	   This is fixed.  Report and patch supplied by RT 80435.

VERSION 6.34  (2012-09-04)
       This is a bug fix so that the PATH won't break non-unix installs.

       Bug fixes
	   Put the PATH inside the Unix section so it doesn't affect non-unix environments.
	   Geoff Rowell

VERSION 6.33  (2012-09-01)
       Improvements to Date::Manip::Delta
	    Added convert method.  This had been planned since 6.30, but based on a discussion
	    with Henrique Martins, I moved it up in priority.

	    Cleaned up handling of delta field lengths (they are now only calculated once.

	    Added cmp method.  Henrique Martins

       Bug fixes
	    The language modules read from the DATA section, but I never closed the filehandle.
	    This is fixed now.	Patch by Doru Theodor Petrescu

	    Added better loading of DM5/DM6 modules.  RT 78512

	    Added a secure PATH to TZ.pm for taint reasons.  In response to RT 78566

       Time zone fixes
	    Now supports timezones in files with spaces where there should be underscores.  This
	    occurs in RHEL desktop.  RT 78566

	    Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2012e)

       Documentation fixes
	    Minor fix.	Henrique Martins

VERSION 6.32  (2012-06-01)
       Modified Build.PL
	   Build.PL now has better support for building (or not building) HTML files.  Apparently
	   this is slow on Windows.  Patch provide in RT 75118.

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug in business day calculations.  RT 76336

	   Fixed a bug where Delta/Recur objects weren't correctly created.  Zsban Ambrus

	   Fixed a bug where SetDate/ForceDate config variables could not be included in a file.
	   Jerry Wilcox

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2012c).

       Documentation fixes
	   Better support for UTF-8 in autogenerated language module pod files.

VERSION 6.31  (2012-03-01)
       Added extended formats to printf method.
	   These include the %<A=NUM>, %<a=NUM>, %<v=NUM>, %<B=NUM>, %<b=NUM>, %<p=NUM>, and
	   %<E=NUM> formats.  Chris Jackson

       Can now parse formats where the time and zone are not adjacent
	   A string like 'Jan 21 17:13:27 2010 -0400' can now be parsed.  Requested on perlmonks
	   ('Can Date::Manip parse a unix timestamp' thread).

       Added PeriodTimeSep config variable.
	   This allows you to use a period as a time separator.  Ed Avis

       Holidays can be used as date strings
	   You can now parse a holiday name in the Date::Manip::Date::parse method.  For example,
	   parse('Christmas').	Requested by Abigail.

       Added new recur modifiers
	   Added WDn, IBD, and NBD modifiers.

       Added a new date format
	   You can now parse '2nd day in May' formats. Randy Harmon

       More flexibility in parsing timezones with both offset and abbrev
	   If you include both the offset and abbreviation in the timezone portion of a date, the
	   parenthesis around the abbreviation are now optional, so you can parse both:

	      -04:00 (EDT)
	      -04:00 EDT

	   Requested by Steven Melendez.

       Deltas now support fractional values.
	   You can now use a delta of 1.5 days.  RT 42699

       Multiple holidays supported
	   A date may now have multiple holidays.  Keith Minkler

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where abbreviations were not being examined case insensitively.	Jurgen

	   The Holidays section may be safely split across multiple config files.  A bug
	   prevented this from working before.

       Language fixes
	   The Norwegian translation was broken due to a typo in the language module.

	   Included complete documentation for each language.

	   Fixed a couple problems with Danish.  Nicholas Oxhaj

	   Added Finnish (from a VERY old mail that I overlooked somehow).  Iikka Virkkunen

	   Cleaned up the values used by printf directives to give the expected result.

       Documentation fixes
	   Fixed a typo.  Nicholas Bamber

VERSION 6.30  (2012-01-11)
       (*) (!) Reworked deltas
	   Much of the delta code was reworked.

	   The constraint that a day is treated as 24 hours was removed (by adding the concept of
	   semi-exact deltas) to better handle daylight saving time calculations.

	   Made cosmetic changes to which signs will be included in a delta to make the deltas
	   more readable.  Signs which are the same as the next higher field will be omitted,
	   even if they cross set boundaries.

	   Added support for non-normalized deltas.  See the $no_normalize option for the parse
	   and set methods.

	   Removed limitations on subtract=2 not working with business calculations.

	   Thanks to discussion on perlmonks, and RT 65774 that prompted me to do this.  I'd been
	   wanting to do it for some time, but the discussion on perlmonks made me realize that
	   this needed to be much higher priority.

       (!) Modified Delta_Format
	   In conjunction with the above work, added the 'semi' mode to Delta_Format.

       (!) Removed some deprecated config variables
	   The following config variables have been removed.



       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2011n).  RT 71595

	   Corrects a bug where +0000 and -0000 offsets were not parsed correctly.  Aaron Hall

	   The zoneinfo data includes rules more than 20 years in the future, so we now store 30
	   years of future dates instead of 20 to catch these rules.

	   When parsing the timezone portion of the date, timezone abbreviations now take higher
	   precedence than zone names (since that is how timezone information is typically
	   specified).	That only impacts dates where the a timezone name is the same as an
	   abbreviation, such as 'CET'.

	   Previously, a date with CET in it was interpreted as in the CET timezone.  Now it is
	   interpreted as in a timezone with the CET abbreviation.

       Better handling of undef in DM6
	   The date/delta parsing routines in DM6 will now handle an undef argument without
	   issuing a warning.  Earl C. Ruby III

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug with the parse_format %f and %i formats.  Tommi Rintala

	   Fixed a bug where the Date::Manip::Delta::set function didn't work to set the month

	   Fixed a bug where parsing some dates near during a DST change failed.

	   Minor bug fix when using Delta_Format.  Prompted while investigating RT 41095.

VERSION 6.25 (2011-08-31)
       Relaxed one constraint in ISO 8601 dates
	   A time separated by whitespace from the date can use a single digit hour.  Yuming
	   Philip Xiang

       (*) Set official removal dates for old config variables
	   Config variables will be removed 2 years after they are deprecated (except for the TZ
	   variable which, due to it's wide use, will be kept for 4 years).

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2011i)

VERSION 6.24 (2011-06-13)
       New features
	   Spaces are ignored in the SetDate/ForceDate config values.  Zsban Ambrus

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where 'in one week' wasn't correctly parsed.  E. M. Shtern

	   Fixed a bug where options passed in to the 'new' as a listref weren't handled
	   properly.  Zsban Ambrus

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2011g)

VERSION 6.23 (2011-04-15)
       (!) Renamed one Date::Manip::Recur method
	   The Date::Manip::Recur::base method has been renamed to basedate .  The
	   Date::Manip::Recur::base method should return the Date::Manip::Base object like all
	   the other Date::Manip modules.

       (*) Reworked holidays defined as recurrences
	   Improved dealing with the bootstrap problem of defining holidays, especially those
	   that contain business day flags.  Mike Tonks

       New features
	   The printf function will now take multiple format strings and return a list of values.
	   Zsban Ambrus

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where GlobalCnf wasn't working.	Peter Edwards

	   Improved error messages in a few cases.

	   Fixed a bug where one invalid date/timezone check was ignored.  Morten Bjornsvik

	   Fixed a bug where '$base2 = new Date::Manip::Base $base1' wasn't working.  RT 67143

	   Fixed a bug where passing dates in to the Recur->dates method failed.  RT 67144

	   Fixed a bug where the mode wasn't being preserved correctly for a delta.  RT 67150

	   Fixed a bug in recurrences where a base date outside of a date range with a very
	   uncommon recurrence format would not work correctly.

	   Fixed a problem where the '%s' printf option didn't work in GMT.  Jean-Michel Hiver

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2011f)

       Documentation fixes
	   Fixed two bad recurrence examples in the documentation.  Peter Edwards and Mike Tonks

VERSION 6.22 (2011-03-07)
       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2011b)

	   Fixed a bug where the gmtoff method of getting the local timezone was broken.  Martin

	   Fixed the 'env' method of determining the local time zone to allow the value to be an
	   offset of seconds since UTC.  This allows the VMS SYS$TIMEZONE_DIFFERENTIAL variable
	   to work correctly.  Martin Zinser.

	   Removed the SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE method from VMS since the value stored there is not the
	   name of a timezone (it's a rule in a non-standard format).  Based on discussion with
	   Martin Zinser.

	   Improved the order in which aliases, abbreviations, etc., are tested to test current
	   usage before non-current usage (there were a few cases where old usages were getting
	   tested before current usage.

       Language fixes
	   The module will now die if a language module cannot be loaded (most likely due to a
	   YAML::Syck issue).  Based on discussion with Martin Zinser.

       Documentation fixes
	   Added a sample config file document.  Based on discussion with Rich Duzenbury.

VERSION 6.21 (2011-01-10)
       New features
	   Deltas may now contain spelled out numbers, so 'in 2 weeks' and 'in two weeks' will
	   both work.  Daniel Shahaf

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where week_of_year didn't work in some cases.  Chris Eveland.

	   Fixed a minor potential bug.  Geraint Edwards.

       Time zone fixes
	   Updated windows time zone aliases.  Daniel Harding

       Language fixes
	   Added Norwegian.  Glenn Sogn

VERSION 6.20 (2010-12-01)
       (*) (!) Reworked recurrences
	   Recurrences were reworked in a (slightly) backward incompatible way to improve their
	   usefulness (and to make them conform to the expected results). Most recurrences will
	   work the same as previously, but a few will differ. Most of this was suggested by Jay

	   A recurring event is now calculated relative to the base date, NOT relative to a
	   previous event. For example, if a recurrence occurs every month, and the base date was
	   Jan 31, then previously, recurring events would have been (in a non-leap year):

	      D(0)		     = Jan 31
	      D(1)  = D(0) + 1 month = Feb 28
	      D(2)  = D(1) + 1 month = Mar 28

	   The new behavior is:

	      D(0)			 = Jan 31
	      D(1)  = D(0) + 1*(1 month) = Feb 28
	      D(2)  = D(0) + 2*(1 month) = Mar 31

	   Previously, if a base date were not specified, it was not determined from the date
	   range. Now, the start date of the date range acts as the base date.

	   The meaning of the base date has changed slightly. It is much more meaningful and
	   useful now.

	   Added iterator functions.  Daniel LaLiberte

	   The RecurNumFudgeDays variable is no longer used and is deprecated.

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2010o)

VERSION 6.14 (2010-10-20)
       (*) Date::Manip 5.xx fully integrated with 6.xx
	   Date::Manip 5.xx and 6.xx are both installed automatically, and the correct one will
	   be chosen.

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where recurrence handling was broken.  RT 62128

       Documentation fixes
	   A lot of documentation was cleaned up to be easier to read, and better organized.

VERSION 6.13 (2010-10-13)
       New features
	   Added the input methods to Date::Manip::Date and Date::Manip::Delta.  Ed Avis.

	   The 'date +%z' command will also be used to determine the timezone.	Oliver Schulze

       Bug fixes
	   Several changes to try to get rid of a memory leaks reported in RT 54937.  Huge thanks
	   to BrowserUK on perlmonks for help.	Unfortunately, it ended up being a bug in perl,
	   and will only be resolved when that bug is fixed. See the Date::Manip::Problems
	   document for more information.

	      Reorganized Base/TZ to get rid of circular references.
	      Added end blocks to clean some global variables.
	      Got rid of switch/given structures.

	   Fixed a bug where an incomplete date with 'last' in it was causing an error.  RT 60138

	   Fixed a bug where 'Sunday, 9th Jan 1972' wasn't parsed correctly.  RT 57832

       Time zone fixes
	   Fixed a bug where Zones.pm was generated with the abbreviations in the wrong order.
	   Amish Chana.

       Language fixes
	   French month abbreviations now support periods.  Bernard Haerri

       Test fixes
	   Added tests from RT 29655 to make sure that the problem never recurs.

       Documentation fixes
	   Fixed documentation problem with the new_* methods in Date::Manip::Obj.  Options must
	   be passed in as \@opts rather than @opts.

	   Cleaned up some of the documentation.

VERSION 6.12 (2010-09-27)
       (!) IntCharSet config variable deprecated
	   With better support for international character sets, the old IntCharSet config
	   variable (which was a bandaid at best) is deprecated. Currently, the functionality
	   still exists, but it will be removed at some point.

       New features
	   Added the Encoding config variable.

	   Now supports parsing the EXIF date format.  Rhesa Rozendaal

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed Build.PL to not require perl 5.010 since the distribution as a whole does not
	   require that (and I want that fact to be in META.yml).

	   Fixed a bug where the Date::Manip::Date::set method was broken when setting individual
	   fields.  Helmut A. Bender

	   Fixed a bug where set didn't work in Date::Manip::Delta. Patch provided in RT 59096.

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2010m)

       Language fixes
	   (*) Converted all language files to UTF-8 and added rudimentary support for character
	   encodings. Some assistance by Stephen Ostermiller.

	   Fixed problem in Polish, Dutch.  Stephen Ostermiller

	   Extended support for 'nth' up to 53rd.  Paco Regodon

	   Added some corrections to German.  Dieter Lange

       Documentation fixes
	   Clarified Date::Manip::Recur documentation based on RT 59132.

VERSION 6.11 (2010-04-30)
       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a problem in Build.PL that had an incorrect module requirement.

VERSION 6.10 (2010-04-29)
       (*) Combined 5.xx and 6.xx releases into one distribution
	   Because the automatic module management tools cpan/cpanp would try to upgrade
	   Date::Manip to the most recent version, and the most recent version will only work if
	   perl 5.10.0 or higher is installed, both the 5.xx and 6.xx releases are now combined
	   into a single distribution.

	   This is described more fully in the Date::Manip::Problems document.

       (!) Zones specified by offset
	   In all operations involving time zones, the time zone must be determined.  By default,
	   it would take all of the information available (date, ISDST, etc.) and determine the
	   most likely time zone. It would take every time zone that matched each piece of
	   information, starting with those that matched in a standard time followed by those
	   that matched in a daylight saving time.

	   When zones are specified by an offset, a standard time would always match since there
	   are standard time zones that match all year long (the military time zones A-Z and the
	   standard time zones of the form Etc/GMT+01). As a result, a daylight saving time match
	   would never occur.

	   Since (if the date falls during a daylight saving time period) you usually want to use
	   a time zone that has that offset in daylight saving time, the default is now to check
	   daylight saving time zones first, followed by standard times.

	   See the Date::Manip::TZ manual (under the zone method) for more information.

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where Date_ConvTZ not working correctly with time zones specified by
	   offset.  Chris Butler

	   Fixed a bug where business mode calculations involving minutes was not handled
	   correctly.  Damien Moore

	   Fixed a bug where business mode calculations failed in some cases.  RT 56638

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2010i)

	   Changed Date::Manip::TZ::zone so "dst" is sometimes the default $dstflag.  Based on
	   the bug report by Chris Butler.

	   OpenUNIX puts a colon at the start of some time zones. It's removed.  Jean Hassler

       Test fixes
	   Converted tests to Test::Inter

       Documentation fixes
	   Fixed a documentation bug in Date::Manip::TZ where "stdonly" was listed as the default
	   value for $dstflag, but in actuality, "std" is the default.

VERSION 6.07 (2010-02-05)
       Bug fixes
	   Fixed bug in Date_TimeZone where it wasn't returning the time zone.	Robert Eden

VERSION 6.06 (2010-02-05)
       Bug fixes
	   Minor bug where %Z printf format didn't always work.

	   Added support for 5pm back in (it was omitted accidentally).  Mark Kennedy

	   Fixed a minor warning.  Morten Bjoernsvik

	   Some additional speedups.

       Time zone fixes
	   Newest zoneinfo data (tzdata 2010b)

	   Added dm_zdump example script.

	   Improved TZ::periods functionality

	   Fixed bug in Date_ConvTZ where empty values weren't defaulting to local time zone.
	   Robert Eden

	   Fixed a couple of problems in the generated time zones for some odd cases
	   (America/Resolute and Asia/Tehran).

VERSION 6.05 (2009-12-09)
       (!) %z format
	   In Date::Manip 5.xx, the %z format in UnixDate printed the offset in the form -0500.
	   In 6.00, I changed that to -05:00:00, but this broke RFC 822 compliance.

	   I've changed %z back to -0500, and introduced a new format (%N) which returns

	   Incidentally, this is the LAST unused letter, so I am now going to have to either stop
	   adding formats, or add some extended format syntax. Not sure yet which, but this may
	   involve a backwards incompatible change in the future.

       (*) Significant speedups.
	   Thanks to Moritz Lenz and BrowserUK on perlmonks for suggestions (and a number of
	   other people on perlmonks for suggestions that I did not end up using, but which
	   provided a great discussion).

       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug in parse_date where the current time was getting used instead of the
	   documented 00:00:00

	   Bug fix where DateCalc didn't work with $mode in some cases.

	   Fixed Makefile.PL/Build.PL to handle Win32::TieRegistry requirement.

	   Changed %z printf behavior back to 5.xx and added %N format. Gilles Lamiral

	   Added dm_date example script.

       Time zone fixes
	   Fixed bug where non-English Windows versions didn't get the time zone. Thanks to Rene
	   Schickbauer for testing.

       Test fixes
	   Reduced the precision of 1 test to avoid a rounding difference when using a perl
	   compiled with uselongdouble.  Andreas Koenig

VERSION 6.04 (2009-11-25)
       Bug fixes
	   Fixed a bug where events were not interpreted in the correct time zone if
	   SetDate/ForceDate used.

VERSION 6.03 (2009-11-24)
       Bug fixes
	   Corrects a backward incompatibility with UnixDate. Rene Schickbauer

       Test fixes
	   A couple more corrections to the tests.

VERSION 6.02 (2009-11-24)
       Bug fixes
	   Disabled curr_zone_methods when taint checking on. I believe that Date::Manip is
	   completely taint friendly at this point.

       Test fixes
	   A quick fix to make sure that the tests run correctly in other time zones.

VERSION 6.01 (2009-11-23)
       Bug fixes
	   (*) Fixed a bug where dates were sometimes getting the wrong time zone when
	   SetDate/ForceDate in effect.

VERSION 6.00 (2009-11-23)
       Date::Manip 6.00 is a total rethink of the module, and a nearly complete rewrite. Please
       refer to the Date::Manip::Changes5to6 document for a list of incompatible changes.

	   (*) Massive reorganization and near total rewrite.

	   (*) Broke into several smaller modules

       New Features
	   (*) Full time zone support (using tzdata 2009s)

	   Added some functionality (suggested by James Elson to improve setting the "current
	   time".  Done with the ForceDate config variable.

	   (*) Converted languages to YAML for much easier maintenance. Patch and suggestion
	   provided by Evan Carroll

	   Added much better formats for deltas. Suggested by Jim Hranicky.

	   Borrowed the _FindWindowsTZName function from the DateTime-TimeZone module.

	   Added SetDate config variable (based on a suggestion by Christian Campbell).

	   Added parse_format which was first suggested by Kim Ryan.

       Other changes
	   Several config variables deprecated

	   Thanks to Jonathan Hogue for helping test Windows additions.

       Bug fixes (correcting problems in the 5.xx releases)
	   Fixed a bug where "YYtoYYYY=c" wouldn't work.

	   VMS bugfix to not call `date` command.  Lane

	   New Year's Day defined using a recurrence which might push the observed day to the
	   previous year was broken. Reported by Jerry Wilcox.

       Language fixes
	   Fixed typo in Turkish translation.

	   Spelling fix in Dutch. Bart Van Loon

       Additional credits
	   I have received many suggestions over time which were automatically handled during the
	   6.00 rewrite. Although the changes weren't made because of the suggestions
	   specifically, I wanted to acknowledge them since I appreciate the suggestions.

	   I believe the first person to suggest writing Date::Manip as an OO module was Eduard

	   Delta_Format initialization done outside of the function.  Eric Boehm

	   Added $subtract to calculation routines. First suggested by Steve Berlage.

	   Added ability to set individual parts of the date (Date::Manip::Date::set).	First
	   suggested by Martin Thurn.

	   UnixDate (i.e. Date::Manip::Date::printf) only calculates formats when they are
	   needed.  Eduard Derksen

	   Parsing will skip some date/time formats if requested. This was first suggested by
	   Eduard Derksen.

	   It has been suggested several times to support multiple languages, multiple config
	   files, or multiple sets of Date_Init options. These suggestions (by Meng Fang, Ed
	   Avis, Christian Campbell, and perhaps others) were at the back of my mind as I
	   developed the Date::Manip::Base class.

	   The regular expressions are all i18n friendly in anticipation of much better support
	   for localization. First suggested by Alex Kapranoff.

	   Parsing a date ('today', 'Monday') gives a time of '00:00:00'. Suggested by Mark

	   Working with fractional days was suggested by Peter van Hardenberg.	This is
	   implemented in Date::Manip::Base::day_of_year method.

       Please refer to the Date::Manip::Problems documentation for information on submitting bug
       reports or questions to the author.
