in reply to Re^2: Date::Manip and date
in thread Date::Manip and date

Minor correction. It's not exact, in case of DateTime it's 1988-12-13T00:00:00 UTC, and in case of Date::Manip it's local time. It should be:
$date->parse('1988-12-13 UTC');
I wonder if it is possible to pass time zone separately from the date.
