NAME

Date::Discordian - Convert Gregorian Dates to Discordian

Build Status

SYNOPSIS

use Date::Discordian;

say discordian( '2020-03-24' ); # Pungenday, the tenth day of Discord in the YOLD 3186

say discordian( 2021, 8, 15 ); # Boomtime, the eighth day of Bureaucracy in the YOLD 3187

say discordian( Date.new("2005-01-31") ) # Sweetmorn, the thirty-first day of Chaos in the YOLD 3171

DESCRIPTION

Exports a single subroutine: discordian(). When given a Gregorian date, returns the text description or hash of date elementsof the corresponding Discordian date.

Will accept the same parameters a the internal Date class. Will also accept the keyword today.

# Get textual date conversions
discordian( '2020-03-24' ); # formatted date string (ISO-8601)

discordian( 2020, 3, 24 ); # Integer year, month, day

discordian( Date.new("2020-03-24") ); # Native Date object

discordian( now ); # Instant

discordian( today ); # today

# Get a hash of date elements - supply a truthy second parameter to force hash return values
my $dd = discordian( '2020-03-24', :h );
say $dd.<weekday season day yold holy>

Most likely, some hash elements will be blank. If it isn't a holyday, :holy will be blank. On St Tib's day, :weekday, :season and :day will be blank.
