Date::Manip::ConfigFile - sample config file

NAME

Date::Manip::ConfigFile - sample config file

DESCRIPTION

Date::Manip is a highly configurable module. Many of the options can be set in a config file. This document includes a sample config file.
The config file consists of three sections. The first section is config variables. This is described more fully in the Date::Manip::Config document.
The second section is the holiday definition section. The third section is the event definition section. These are both described more fully in the Date::Manip::Holidays document.

SAMPLE CONFIG FILE

The sample config file below works for newer versions of Date::Manip. Some of the config variables may change, or be deprecated, and some may not work with earlier versions of Date::Manip, so it is strongly suggested that you check out the documentation for the version of Date::Manip you are using to confirm any of the config variables you want to include.
