       VM::EC2::Instance::Status::Event - Object describing a scheduled instance maintenance


        @status_items = $ec2->describe_instance_status();
        for my $i (@status_items) {
           for my $event ($i->events) {
              print $i->instance_id,': ',
                    $event->code,' ',
                    $event->description, ' ',
                    $event->notBefore, ' ',


       This objects describes a scheduled maintenance event on an instance, and is returned by
       calling the events() method of one of the status item objects returned by

       NOTE: There is an inconsistency in the AWS documentation for this data type. The events
       field is documented as being a list, but the examples shown show a single object. At
       release time, I was unable to verify which is correct and have written the code such that
       it will detect a single value in the response object and return this as a single-element


        code()        -- The code for this event, one of "instance-reboot",
                           "system-reboot", "instance-retirement"

        description() -- A description of the event.

        notBefore()   -- The earliest scheduled start time for the event.

        notAfter()    -- The latest scheduled end time for the event.

       When used in a string context, this object interpolates as a string in the form:

        system-reboot [2011-12-05T13:00:00+0000 - 2011-12-06T13:00:00+000]
