Time::Duration::Parse - Parse string that represents time duration
use Time::Duration::Parse; my $seconds = parse_duration("2 minutes and 3 seconds"); # 123
Time::Duration::Parse is a module to parse human readable duration strings like 2 minutes and 3 seconds to seconds. It does the opposite of "duration_exact" in Time::Duration function in Time::Duration and is roundtrip safe. So, the following is always true. use Time::Duration::Parse; use Time::Duration; my $seconds = int rand 100000; is( parse_duration(duration_exact($seconds)), $seconds );
parse_duration $seconds = parse_duration($string); Parses duration string and returns seconds. When it encounters an error in a given string, it dies with an exception saying "Unknown timespec: blah blah blah". This function is exported by default.
Time::Duration::Parse::More has the same interface as this module, but supports more expressions and memoization. Time::Duration can be used for the reverse of this module: given a number of seconds it will provide an English description of the duration. Time::Duration::Object provides an OO interface to Time::Duration. Time::Duration::LocaleObject provides an OO interface to the "Time::Duration::??" modules, which provide language-specific versions of Time::Duration. DateTime::Format::Duration can be used to parse natural language descriptions of durations, returning an instance of DateTime::Duration, which can then be converted to seconds using the "in_units()" method.
