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

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.
