Fedora Update Notification
2011-02-20 04:10:38

Name        : perl-DateTime-Precise
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.05
Release     : 11.fc15
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/DateTime-Precise
Summary     : Perform common time and date operations with additional GPS operations
Description :
The purpose of this library was to replace our dependence on Unix epoch time,
which, being limited to a range of about 1970 to 2030, is inadequate for our
purposes (we have data as old as 1870). This date library effectively handles
dates from A.D. 1000 to infinity, and would probably work all the way back to 0
(ignoring, of course, the switch-over to the Gregorian calendar). The useful
features of Unix epoch time (ease of date difference calculation and date
comparison, strict ordering) are preserved, and elements such as
human-legibility are added. The library handles fractional seconds and some
date/time manipulations used for the Global Positioning Satellite system.

Update Information:

New rpm4.9 broke filtering of requires/provides in Perl packages. This update should fix this one module.

Testing: this module can be installed.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update perl-DateTime-Precise' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
