DateTime::Pregnancy Pulled from CPAN

[ #21313 ]

I have by mistake made a namespace screwup by releasing DateTime::Pregnancy. I was kindly invited to join the DateTime mailinglist by Dave Rolsky, so I did.

Here we had a discussion on the use of the DateTime namespace and I understood that I had made a mess. So I decided to pull the module from CPAN.

I will problably relaunch it in its current form under the name of Date::Pregnancy and I will then redesign aspects of the module to accomodate to the DateTime module requirements and I will mail these suggestions to the mailinglist before releasing anything the CPAN.

I understand the idea of what the hardworking people contributing to the DateTime::* namespace are attempting to do (look at my own efforts in Date::Holidays::*), so I will attempt to accomodate to this and will only release modules to the namespace after general acceptance by the people on the DateTime mailinglist.

To the DateTime Lords, thanks for your constructive reponses and now it is back to the drawing board

  • The Date::Time issue apart, this is a nice idea.

    I remember that during my wife's first pregnancy I wrote a script to tell me what week she was in.

    It is the type of thing that I haven't had time to write at any time since then. :-)

    Good work.

    • Just out of curiosity, can you remember, which method your script was based on?

      • Hmm... I don't know about what's the habit where you live, but here it's customary to start counting from the start of the last period. So that's well 2 weeks or so, before the actual pregnancy.

        No, it's not just here [].

        • Hello,

          We use the same calculation methods as described on the page you refer to.

          I have created some tests validating the numbers of my calculations against the numbers we got from our own doctor (in the case of my girlfriend's pregnancy) and these are a match (I am currently trying to obtain more test data).

          But I do not understand what you are referring to since the methods I use all are based on the first date of the last period (that is common for the 3 methods I have knowledge of), they are not based
