in reply to Answer: Leap Year
in thread dates and times

And the source code for Date::Leapyear reads:

sub isleap { my ($year) = @_; return 1 if (( $year % 400 ) == 0 ); # 400's are leap return 0 if (( $year % 100 ) == 0 ); # Other centuries are not return 1 if (( $year % 4 ) == 0 ); # All other 4's are leap return 0; # Everything else is not }

which is already a provided answer. The same semi-correct formula is also used in Astro::Time and DateTime. Unless someone goes to the touble of encoding the entire FAQ, stick with the original answer. I like CPAN as much as the next Monk, but some modules are wasteful.

Updated: I do note that the DateTime::Calendar::* modules at least make some attempt at dealing with cultural and temporal variances ...


If anyone needs me I'll be in the Angry Dome.

    Yup. This was probably a pretty wasteful module.
