NAME
       APR::Date - Perl API for APR date manipulating functions

Synopsis
         use APR::Date ();

         # parse HTTP-complient date string
         $date_string = 'Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT';
         $date_parsed = APR::Date::parse_http($date_string);

         # parse RFC822-complient date string
         $date_string = 'Sun, 6 Nov 94 8:49:37 GMT';
         $date_parsed = APR::Date::parse_rfc($date_string);

Description
       "APR::Socket" provides the Perl interface to APR date manipulating
       functions.

API
       "APR::Date" provides the following functions and/or methods:

   "parse_http"
       Parse HTTP date strings

         $date_parsed = parse_http($date_string);

       arg1: $date_string ( string )
           The date string can be in one of the following formats:

             Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT  ; RFC 822, updated by RFC 1123
             Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT ; RFC 850, obsoleted by RFC 1036
             Sun Nov  6 08:49:37 1994       ; ANSI C's asctime() format

           refer to RFC2616 for the details (GMT is assumed, regardless of the
           used timezone).

       ret: $date_parsed ( number )
           the number of microseconds since 1 Jan 1970 GMT, or 0 if out of
           range or if the date is invalid.

       since: 2.0.00

       Remember to divide the return value by 1_000_000 if you need it in
       seconds.

   "parse_rfc"
       Parse a string resembling an RFC 822 date.  It's meant to be lenient in
       its parsing of dates.  Hence, this will parse a wider range of dates
       than "parse_http()".

         $date_parsed = parse_rfc($date_string);

       arg1: $date_string ( string )
           The date string can be in one of the following formats:

             Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT  ; RFC 822, updated by RFC 1123
             Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT ; RFC 850, obsoleted by RFC 1036
             Sun Nov  6 08:49:37 1994       ; ANSI C's asctime() format
             Sun, 6 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT   ; RFC 822, updated by RFC 1123
             Sun, 06 Nov 94 08:49:37 GMT    ; RFC 822
             Sun, 6 Nov 94 08:49:37 GMT     ; RFC 822
             Sun, 06 Nov 94 08:49 GMT       ; Unknown [drtr\@ast.cam.ac.uk]
             Sun, 6 Nov 94 08:49 GMT        ; Unknown [drtr\@ast.cam.ac.uk]
             Sun, 06 Nov 94 8:49:37 GMT     ; Unknown [Elm 70.85]
             Sun, 6 Nov 94 8:49:37 GMT      ; Unknown [Elm 70.85]

       ret: $date_parsed ( number )
           the number of microseconds since 1 Jan 1970 GMT, or 0 if out of
           range or if the date is invalid.

       since: 2.0.00

       Remember to divide the return value by 1_000_000 if you need it in
       seconds.
