       XML::XQL::Date - Adds an XQL::Node type for representing and comparing dates and times


        use XML::XQL;
        use XML::XQL::Date;

        my $query = new XML::XQL::Query (Expr => "doc//timestamp[. < date('12/31/1999')]");
        my @results = $query->solve ($doc);


       This package uses the Date::Manip package to add an XQL node type (called XML::XQL::Date)
       that can be used to represent dates and times.  The Date::Manip package can parse almost
       any date or time format imaginable.  (I tested it with Date::Manip 5.33 and I know for
       sure that it doesn't work with 5.20 or lower.)

       It also adds the XQL date function which creates an XML::XQL::Date object from a string.
       See XML::XQL::Tutorial for a description of the date() function.

       You can plug in your own Date type, if you don't want to use Date::Manip
        for some reason. See XML::XQL and the XML::XQL::Date source file for more details.
