NAME

DateTime::Format::Builder::Parser::Quick - Use another formatter, simply

VERSION

version 0.81

SYNOPSIS

    use DateTime::Format::Builder (
    parsers => { parse_datetime => [
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::HTTP' },
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::Mail' },
        { Quick => 'DateTime::Format::IBeat' },
    ]});

is the same as:

    use DateTime::Format::HTTP;
    use DateTime::Format::Mail;
    use DateTime::Format::IBeat;
    
    use DateTime::Format::Builder (
    parsers => { parse_datetime => [
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::HTTP->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::Mail->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
        sub { eval { DateTime::Format::IBeat->parse_datetime( $_[1] ) } },
    ]});

(These two pieces of code can both be found in the test suite; one as quick.t, the other as fall.t.)

DESCRIPTION

Quick adds a parser that allows some shortcuts when writing fairly standard and mundane calls to other formatting modules.

SPECIFICATION

Quick has two keys, one optional.

The Quick keyword should have an argument of either an object or a class name. If it's a class name then the class is used.

The method keyword is optional with a default of parse_datetime. It's either name of the method to invoke on the object, or a reference to a piece of code.

In any case, the resultant code ends up looking like:

     my $rv = $Quick->$method( $date );

SUPPORT

See DateTime::Format::Builder for details.
