DESCRIPTION
"Time::Moment" is an immutable object representing a date and time of
day with an offset from UTC in the ISO 8601 calendar system.
Time is measured in nanoseconds since "0001-01-01T00Z". In "Time:Moment"
leap seconds are ignored. It is assumed that there are exactly
"86,400,000,000,000" nanoseconds per day. "Time::Moment" can represent
all epoch integers from "-62,135,596,800" to "2,534,02,300,799"; this
range suffices to measure times to nanosecond precision for any instant
that is within "0001-01-01T00:00:00Z" to "9999-12-31T23:59:59Z".
CONSTRUCTORS
new
$tm = Time::Moment->new(
year => 2012,
month => 12,
day => 24,
hour => 15,
minute => 30,
second => 45,
nanosecond => 123456789,
offset => 0,
);
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" from the given components.
Parameters:
year
The year [1, 9999].
month
The month of the year [1, 12].
day The day of the month [1, 31]. The day must be valid for the year and
month, otherwise an exception is raised.
hour
The hour of the day [0, 23].
minute
The minute of the hour [0, 59].
second
The second of the minute [0, 59].
nanosecond
The nanosecond of the second [0, 999_999_999].
offset
The offset from UTC in minutes [-1080, 1080] (±18:00).
now
$tm = Time::Moment->now;
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" that is set to the current date
and time from the system clock in the system time zone, with the offset
set to the system's time zone offset from UTC.
now_utc
$tm = Time::Moment->now_utc;
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" that is set to the current date
and time from the system clock in the UTC time zone.
from_epoch
$tm = Time::Moment->from_epoch($seconds);
$tm = Time::Moment->from_epoch($seconds, $nanosecond);
$tm = Time::Moment->from_epoch($seconds [, nanosecond => 0] [, precision => 6]);
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" from the given *seconds* from
the epoch of 1970-01-01T00Z. Fractional seconds is supported if the
constructor is invoked with *seconds* only, the default precision is 6
(microseconds).
Parameters:
nanosecond
$tm = Time::Moment->from_epoch($seconds, nanosecond => 0);
The optional parameter *nanosecond* [0, 999_999_999] specifies the
nanosecond of the second.
precision
$tm = Time::Moment->from_epoch($seconds, precision => 6);
The optional parameter *precision* [0, 9] specifies the precision of
the fractional seconds. The default precision is 6 (microseconds).
from_object
$tm = Time::Moment->from_object($object);
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" from the given *object*. If the
given object is an instance of "Time::Moment" it's returned otherwise an
attempt is made to coerce the given object to an instance of
"Time::Moment".
"Time::Moment" implements coercion handlers for the following object
types:
DateTime
$tm = Time::Moment->from_object( DateTime->now );
The given "DateTime" object must be within the supported range and
must have a time zone or an offset from UTC, coercing from the
'floating' time zone is not supported.
Time::Piece
$tm = Time::Moment->from_object( scalar Time::Piece::localtime() );
The given "Time::Piece" object must be within the supported date
range.
The coercion scheme is extensible and implemented as documented in
Params::Coerce:
$tm = Params::Coerce::coerce('Time::Moment', scalar Time::Piece::localtime());
$tm = Params::Coerce::coerce('Time::Moment', DateTime->now);
"Time::Moment" also implements a coercion handler from "Time::Moment" to
"DateTime" and "Time::Piece":
$dt = Params::Coerce::coerce('DateTime', Time::Moment->now);
$tp = Params::Coerce::coerce('Time::Piece', Time::Moment->now);
from_string
$tm = Time::Moment->from_string($string);
$tm = Time::Moment->from_string($string [, lenient => false]);
Constructs an instance of "Time::Moment" from the given *string*. The
string must consist of a complete date representation and time of day
followed by a zone designator. The time of day may be reduced to hour of
the day, the second of the minute may have a decimal fraction. The
decimal sign can be either the comma [,] or the full stop [.]. A decimal
fraction must have at least one digit and may have a total of nine
digits, if the fractional precision is greater than nine digits, the
value will be truncated.
The following are examples of complete date and time of day
representations:

The string representation may consist of a mixture of the basic format
and the extended format. The time designator [T] may be in lower case
[t] or replaced with a single space. A single space is also accepted
between the time of day and the zone designator. The UTC designator [Z]
may also be in lower case [z]. The literal string GMT or UTC may be used
as a UTC designator and may have an offset. Usage of these string
representations is strongly discouraged as they do not conform to the
ISO 8601 standard.

bytes that contains MAGIC (2 bytes), time zone offset from UTC (2
bytes), the number of days from Rata Die (4 bytes), second of the day (4

JSON
"Time::Moment" implements a "TO_JSON" method that returns the
stringified representation of the instance.
CBOR
"Time::Moment" implements a "TO_CBOR" method that returns the
stringified representation of the instance using tag 0 (*standard
date/time string*).

TIME ZONES
An instance of "Time::Moment" represents an unambiguous point in time,
but it's not time zone aware. When performing arithmetic on the local
date/time or altering the components of the local date/time it may be
necessary to use a time zone to convert to the correct representation.
"Time::Moment" is API compatible with DateTime::TimeZone and
DateTime::TimeZone::Tzfile.
Converting from instant time to designated time zone
$tm = Time::Moment->new(
year => 2012,
month => 12,
day => 24,
hour => 15
);
$zone = DateTime::TimeZone->new(name => 'America/New_York');
$offset = $zone->offset_for_datetime($tm) / 60;
say $tm->with_offset_same_instant($offset); # 2012-12-24T10-05
Converting from local time to designated time zone
$tm = Time::Moment->new(
year => 2012,
month => 12,
day => 24,
hour => 15
);
$zone = DateTime::TimeZone->new(name => 'America/New_York');
$offset = $zone->offset_for_local_datetime($tm) / 60;
say $tm->with_offset_same_local($offset); # 2012-12-24T15-05
The Effect of Daylight Saving Time
The time zone *Europe/Brussels* has 01:00 UTC as standard time, and
02:00 UTC as daylight savings time, with transition dates according to
the European Summer Time
.
$zone = DateTime::TimeZone->new(name => 'Europe/Brussels');
sub convert_from_instant {
my ($tm, $zone) = @_;
my $offset = $zone->offset_for_datetime($tm) / 60;
return $tm->with_offset_same_instant($offset);
}
sub convert_from_local {
my ($tm, $zone) = @_;
my $offset = $zone->offset_for_local_datetime($tm) / 60;
return $tm->with_offset_same_local($offset);
}
European Summer Time begins (clocks go forward) at 01:00 UTC on the last
Sunday in March, in 2014 the transition date was March 30.
$tm1 = Time::Moment->from_string('2014-03-29T12+01');
$tm2 = $tm1->plus_hours(24);
say convert_from_instant($tm2, $zone); # 2014-03-30T13+02
say convert_from_local($tm2, $zone); # 2014-03-30T12+02
During the transition from standard time to daylight savings time, the
local time interval between 02:00:00 and 02:59:59 does not exist. Local
time values in that interval are invalid. "DateTime::TimeZone" raises an
exception when attempting to convert non-existing local time.
$tm1 = Time::Moment->from_string('2014-03-29T22+01');
$tm2 = $tm1->plus_hours(4);
say convert_from_instant($tm2, $zone); # 2014-03-30T03+02
say convert_from_local($tm2, $zone); # raises an exception
European Summer Time ends (clocks go backward) at 01:00 UTC on the last
Sunday in October, in 2014 the transition date was October 26.
$tm1 = Time::Moment->from_string('2014-10-25T12+02');
$tm2 = $tm1->plus_hours(24);
say convert_from_instant($tm2, $zone); # 2014-10-26T11+01
say convert_from_local($tm2, $zone); # 2014-10-26T12+01
During the transition from daylight savings time to standard time, the
local time interval between 02:00:00 and 02:59:59 is repeated. Local
time values in that interval are ambiguous because they occur twice.
When "DateTime::TimeZone" converts an ambiguous local time it returns
the numerically lowest offset (usually the standard one).
$tm1 = Time::Moment->from_string('2014-10-25T22+02');
$tm2 = $tm1->plus_hours(4);
say convert_from_instant($tm2, $zone); # 2014-10-26T02+02
say convert_from_local($tm2, $zone); # 2014-10-26T02+01
