Class::Date - Date/time database for perl

Class::Date provides a date datatype for Perl. You can create new Class::Date objects with a constructor from different scalar formats, array refs, and hash refs, and then you can easily manipulate it by the builtin "+" and "-" operators (e.g., $date=date([2001,03,15])+'3Y 1s'). Relative date types also available.
