Not necessarily - it works as is here, Date::Manip::Date is brought in by Date::Manip.

    Not necessarily

    I stand by what I said. There's no reason to that undocumented feature, especially since it didn't work.

    it works as is here,

    Apparently not in the version the OP has.

    Actually, this is NOT guaranteed to work.

    Date::Manip version 5.xx does not include the Date::Manip::Date module. Date::Manip 6.xx is a complete rewrite which breaks the module into several pieces including Date::Manip::Date for working with dates (and other modules for working with deltas, timezones, etc.). The actual Date::Manip module is just a backwards-compatible wrapper around these modules.

    So, if you say:

       use Date::Manip;
       $obj = new Date::Manip::Date;
    
    and you have Date::Manip 5.xx installed, this code will fail, exactly as described elsewhere in the thread.

    As suggested elsewhere in the thread, the proper solution IS to include the line:

       use Date::Manip::Date;
    
    in the code.
