       DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS - Convert DateTimes to/from Mac OS epoch seconds


         use DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS;

         my $dt = DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS->parse_datetime( 1051488000 );
          # 1051488000

         my $formatter = DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS->new();

         my $dt2 = $formatter->parse_datetime( 1051488000 );

          # 1051488000


       This module can convert a DateTime object (or any object that can be converted to a
       DateTime object) to the number of seconds since the Mac OS epoch.

       Note that the Mac OS epoch is defined in the local time zone. This means that these two
       pieces of code will print the same number of seconds, even though they represent two
       datetimes 6 hours apart:

           $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2003, month => 5, day => 2,
                                time_zone => 'Europe/Amsterdam' );
           print $formatter->format_datetime($dt);

           $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2003, month => 5, day => 2,
                                time_zone => 'America/Chicago' );
           print $formatter->format_datetime($dt);

       Mac OS X is a Unix system, and uses the Unix epoch (1970-01-01T00:00:00). Use
       DateTime::Format::Epoch::Unix instead.


       Most of the methods are the same as those in DateTime::Format::Epoch.  The only difference
       is the constructor.

       ยท   new()

           Constructor of the formatter/parser object. It has no parameters.


       Support for this module is provided via the email list. See for more details.
