Time::Seconds(3pm) Perl Programmers Reference Guide Time::Seconds(3pm)
Time::Seconds - a simple API to convert seconds to other date values
my $t = localtime;
$t += ONE_DAY;
my $t2 = localtime;
my $s = $t - $t2;
print "Difference is: ", $s->days, "\n";
This module is part of the Time::Piece distribution. It allows the user to find out the
number of minutes, hours, days, weeks or years in a given number of seconds. It is
returned by Time::Piece when you delta two Time::Piece objects.
Time::Seconds also exports the following constants:
Since perl does not (yet?) support constant objects, these constants are in seconds only,
so you cannot, for example, do this: "print ONE_WEEK->minutes;"
The following methods are available:
my $val = Time::Seconds->new(SECONDS)
$val->financial_months; # 30 days
$val->pretty; # gives English representation of the delta
The usual arithmetic (+,-,+=,-=) is also available on the objects.
The methods make the assumption that there are 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week,
365.24225 days in a year and 12 months in a year. (from The Calendar FAQ at

Currently the methods aren't as efficient as they could be, for reasons of clarity. This
is probably a bad idea.
