This list is pretty out of date at the moment. For a more complete list, trying Searching CPAN for "datetime".

The old list ...

Other Modules

  • DateTime::Functions (Autrijus Tang) - a procedural interface for DateTime constructors.
  • DateTime::HiRes (Joshua Hoblitt) - provides a single method, DateTime::HiRes->now(), that uses Time::HiRes::time() to get the current epoch value as a floating point number.
  • DateTime::LazyInit (Rich Measham) - an object with a very quick constructor that provides a small part of the API, inflating into a real object as needed .
  • DateTime::TimeZone::Alias (Joshua Hoblitt) - allows you to create and remove arbitrary aliases to time zones. This functionality may be integrated into DateTime::TimeZone in the future.
  • DateTime::TimeZone::LMT (Rick Measham) - a time zone class for local mean time offsets.
  • DateTime::TimeZone::TAI (Eugene van der Pjill) - implements support for TAI as a timezone.

Modules that are not officially part of the DateTime suite but which play nice with it in some way.
