in reply to Mining the hidden gems of CPAN

After I hacked msy own crappy "Date::Locale" to format localtime in a different language, I stumbled accross Graham Barr's Date::Language::* modules. These are tucked away in the TimeDate modules.

So I submitted a Date::Language::Dutch module and threw away my local hack. This definitely was an improvement, especially for maintenance.

Date::Language::*

    Wow! How could I have missed those?

    I did something similar last year. Don't laugh because I haven't touched them in a long time. In fact, way before I found Perl Monks! Without further ado... http://free.prohosting.com/~musgrove/scripts/

    I need to spruce those up a bit and submit some Date::Language modules of my own now.

    Obligatory warnings:

    1. I'm not a linguist. The only languages I know are English and Perl (and I'm not great at either of those). You may find big mistakes in the translations.
    2. I started writing these scripts around the end of 2000 and continued work on them until sometime near the end of 2001 when I moved them. They need some work.
    3. You will find some broken links. I am in the process of taking the site down, transfering things that I want to keep, etc...
