Projects / Date::Pcalc


The Date::Pcalc Perl module is a direct translation of Steffen Beyer's excellent Date::Calc module from a combination of C and Perl to Perl only. The Perl module does all kinds of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in all western countries today), thereby complying with all relevant norms and standards: ISO/R 2015-1971, DIN 1355 and, to some extent, ISO 8601 (where applicable).

Release Notes: This release now additionally also includes a C/XS part (from Date::Calc) which can optionally be installed instead of the pure-Perl part, in order to make the transition to Date::Calc easier yet without requiring changes to existing code. This is the last release of Date::Pcalc, because Date::Calc 6.2 now includes the pure-Perl part which used to be Date::Pcalc.
