DateTime::Infinite - Infinite past and future DateTime objects
my $future = DateTime::Infinite::Future->new();
my $past = DateTime::Infinite::Past->new();
This module provides two DateTime.pm subclasses, "DateTime::Infinite::Future" and
The objects are in the "floating" timezone, and this cannot be changed.
There seem to be lots of problems when dealing with infinite numbers on Win32. This may be
a problem with this code, Perl, or Win32's IEEE math implementation. Either way, the
module may not be well-behaved on Win32 operating systems.
The only constructor for these two classes is the "new()" method, as shown in the
SYNOPSIS. This method takes no parameters.
All "get" methods in this module simply return infinity, positive or negative. If the
method is expected to return a string, it return the string representation of positive or
negative infinity used by your system. For example, on my system calling "year()" returns
a number which when printed appears either "inf" or "-inf".
The object is not mutable, so the "set()", "set_time_zone()", and "truncate()" methods are
all do-nothing methods that simply return the object they are called with.
Obviously, the "is_finite()" method returns false and the "is_infinite()" method returns
