  • Hey, I know, instead of whining in a journal entry you could send me a useful bug report. That might be a little less satisfying, but it would of course have the effect of leading to a fix.

    I can't reproduce whatever bug you think you've found. I did this:


    print DateTime->new(day=>6,month=>11,year=>2003)->datetime;


    and it works fine.

      Sad to think that people might be satisfied with complaining than with solving the problem.

      • Patches for humanity welcome. (Not that I have the maintainer's e-mail address :)

        • Another dig. I really am disappointed they had to come from three people who contributions I actually respected.

          Does it really come down to the level of slashdot comments?

          • I certainly didn't mean to hurt your feelings and I apologize.

            Bug reports for this module are between you and Dave; I have no stake in the matter. I'm just trying to be witty. Sometimes it doesn't work for the intended audience, and that's fine.

      • Sad to think that the put downs are coming thick and fast despite sending a bug report BEFORE I posted my Journal. AND trying to write a set of test cases.

        If my contributions are so lowly thought of I'll not bother to help in future.

        • Sad to think that people might be satisfied with complaining than with solving the problem.

          Sorry, let me rephrases: "Sad to think that could be an expectation." I didn't mean it as a putdown.
