in thread Providing Fractions of a second to DateTime?

Thanks for the pointer to nanosecond. I originally saw that and tried various things that made sense to me. For instance:
my $dt = DateTime->new(year=>$pYear, month=>$pMonth, day=>$pDay, millisecond=>$pStart, time_zone=>$tZone);
Well, that didn't work, since it doesn't take millisecond as an argument to new, so I tried converting $pStart to nanoseconds-since-midnight and substituting in that, but alas - it seems that the nanosecond value is only for providing the intra-second-delta.

See my above response to what I think I need to do. I'm hoping someone will show me a better way...

    $dt = DateTime->new( year=>2003, month=>6, day=>12, hour=>7, minute=>22, second=>12, millisecond=>345, microsecond=>678, nanosecond=>901 );

    this should also work and use $dt->millisecond() for your calculations
    refer cpan

      i think this should also work

      It doesn't.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

        sorry tobyink my fault
        constructor doesnt support milli seconds and microseconds

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
