       Time::gmtime - by-name interface to Perl's built-in gmtime() function


        use Time::gmtime;
        $gm = gmtime();
        printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n",
           (qw(Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun))[ $gm->wday() ];

        use Time::gmtime qw(:FIELDS);
        printf "The day in Greenwich is %s\n",
           (qw(Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun))[ $tm_wday ];

        $now = gmctime();

        use Time::gmtime;
        use File::stat;
        $date_string = gmctime(stat($file)->mtime);


       This module's default exports override the core gmtime() function, replacing it with a
       version that returns "Time::tm" objects.  This object has methods that return the
       similarly named structure field name from the C's tm structure from time.h; namely sec,
       min, hour, mday, mon, year, wday, yday, and isdst.

       You may also import all the structure fields directly into your namespace as regular
       variables using the :FIELDS import tag.  (Note that this still overrides your core
       functions.)  Access these fields as variables named with a preceding "tm_" in front their
       method names.  Thus, "$tm_obj->mday()" corresponds to $tm_mday if you import the fields.

       The gmctime() function provides a way of getting at the scalar sense of the original
       CORE::gmtime() function.

       To access this functionality without the core overrides, pass the "use" an empty import
       list, and then access function functions with their full qualified names.  On the other
       hand, the built-ins are still available via the "CORE::" pseudo-package.


       While this class is currently implemented using the Class::Struct module to build a
       struct-like class, you shouldn't rely upon this.
