in thread Core module: Attribute::Handlers behaviour

"Just because it is the main scripts runtime, doesn't prevent the eval use'd script from having its own BEGIN & END times. After all, it still has to be compiled."

Naturally. But it was my reading of the OP that he wanted to be able to apply the attributes defined in the eval-use'd script to subs defined in its caller, which would have already finished compiling. Of course, I may have misinterpreted.

"Shame the function name isn't provided to the attribute handler."

That's why god invented Sub::Identify ;-)

1066 and all that

[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
[james28909]: ok
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
