NAME
       DateTime::Format::DateParse - Parses Date::Parse compatible formats

SYNOPSIS
	   use DateTime::Format::DateParse;

	   my $dt = DateTime::Format::DateParse->parse_datetime( $date );
	   my $dt = DateTime::Format::DateParse->parse_datetime( $date, $zone );

DESCRIPTION
       This module is a compatibility wrapper around Date::Parse.

USAGE
   Import Parameters
       This module accepts no arguments to it's "import" method and exports no symbols.

   Methods
       Class Methods

       o   parse_datetime($date [, $zone])

	   Accepts a Date::Parse compatible $date string and optionally a Time::Zone compatible
	   $zone string.

	   Returns a DateTime object.

GOTCHAS
       o   If parse_datetime is called on a $date that doesn't know specify a timezone and $zone
	   is not set, then the timezone of the returned DateTime object will be set to the
	   "local" timezone.  This is consistent with the behavior of Date::Parse.

       o   If parse_datetime is called without a $zone but the $date string does specify a
	   timezone/offset or if parse_datetime is called with a $zone that DateTime::TimeZone
	   does not understand, the returned DateTime object will have it's timezone set to a
	   fixed offset from UTC.  This means that "DST" information is not available and date
	   math will not reflect "DST" transitions.  This may be resolved for true timezones by
	   using the DateTime::TimeZone::Alias module to "alias" the Time::Zone timezone to an
	   Olson DB name.  This may be done automatically in a future release.
