NAME

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

VERSION

version 0.83  

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 "use"d.

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);
