  • Funny because Time::Piece 2.00 (not yet out of beta) ISA DateTime.

    I'm not sure that performance is that critical - it's probably in the thousands of operations per second region. And DateTime buys you so much - a unified base class with support for decimal second values and dates outside the 1970-2038 region.
  • Does Date::Tie handle leap seconds? Does it do _anything_ at all useful with time zones? How flexible is its date math? Does it handle dates outside the epoch?

    There are a number of things DateTime does that literally no other Perl date/time module can do. If you need any of them, then you probably are stuck with DateTime ;)

    Note that the author of Date::Tie is also a major contributor the DateTime project as well.
