SYNOPSIS

  use Convert::NLS_DATE_FORMAT qw(oracle2posix posix2oracle);
  my $strptime = oracle2posix($NLS_DATE_FORMAT);
  $NLS_DATE_FORMAT = posix2oracle($strftime);

DESCRIPTION

Convert Oracle's NLS_DATE_FORMAT string into a strptime format string, or the reverse.

Functions

oracle2posix
Takes an Oracle NLS_DATE_FORMAT string and converts it into formatting string compatible with "strftime" or "strptime".
 
  my $format = oracle2posix('YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'); # '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'
    
 
Character sequences that should not be translated may be enclosed within double quotes, as specified in the Oracle documentation.
 
  my $format = oracle2posix('YYYY-MM-DD"T"HH24:MI:SS'); # '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S'
    
posix2oracle
Takes a "strftime" or "strptime" formatting string and converts it into an Oracle NLS_DATE_FORMAT string. It is possible to create strings which Oracle will not accept as valid NLS_DATE_FORMAT strings.
 
  my $format = posix2oracle('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'); # 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'
    

EXPORT
