Version 0.04 just uploaded to CPAN goes one better - it allows the
caller to provide the value of -b used. Of course internally it really
only differentiates between -b != 2, but it removes ambiguity and is
somewhat future proof.
Date::Remind::Event - Manipulate 'remind' output with Perl
$Date::Remind::Event::BFLAG = 1;
my $e = Date::Remind::Event->new(
'2010/07/06 * * 60 1080 18:00-19:00 My Event'
print 'Start: '. $e->date->hms ."\n";
print 'Duration: '. $e->duration->hours ." hour\n";
print 'Description: '. $e->body ."\n";
Date::Remind::Event provides a Perl object interface to textual events
emitted by remind(1). The expected format of the input is the same as
what is produced by "remind -s" (as defined in the rem2ps(1) manpage
under "REM2PS INPUT FORMAT").
remind(1) produces slightly different output depending on the value of
the -b flag. To make sure that Date::Remind::Event handles this
correctly you should set $Date::Remind::Event::BFLAG to the same value
(default is 0).
new($text) => Date::Remind::Event
Converts $text into a single Date::Remind::Event object.
date => DateTime
The start of the event.
duration => DateTime::Duration
The length of the event.
end => DateTime
The end of the remind event.
tag => string
The TAG value of the event.
body => string
The body of the remind event.
DateTime, DateTime::Duration, remind(1), rem2ps(1)
