Plucene::Document::DateSerializer - Utility functions for dealing with dates
use Plucene::Document::DateSerializer my $field = Plucene::Document::Field->Text( date => freeze_date(Time::Piece $t) ); $doc->add($field);
Dates and times in Plucene should be serialized using the "freeze_date" function so that the Plucene::Search::DateFilter can filter on them during future searches.
freeze_date my $string = freeze_date(Time::Piece $t) This routine, exported by default, turns a "Time::Piece" object into a string in a format expected by both Plucene and Lucene. thaw_date my Time::Piece $t = Plucene::Document::DateSerializer::thaw_date($string) This routine is not exported, and is not used by the Plucene core. It is useful for debugging dates, and simply reverses the "freeze_date" operation.
