Official Mirror:
Date::Calc is a Perl module which provides a variety of date calculations based on the Gregorian calendar (the one used in Western countries today), complying with the ISO/R 2015-1971 and DIN 1355 standards which specify things such as what leap years are, when they occur, how the week numbers are defined, what's the first day of the week, how many weeks (52 or 53) a given year has, and so on. Although the Gregorian calendar was only adopted 1582 by most (not all) European countries (some countries continued to use the Julian calendar until as late as the beginning of the 20th century!), this package allows you to extrapolate the Gregorian calendar back until the year 1. If Date::Calc::XS (libdate-calc-xs-perl) is available, this package will automatically accelerate its operation using the C/XS implementation.

    2015-02-05 - Damyan Ivanov <> libdate-calc-perl (6.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium * add a patch to fix tests that are broken since 1 Jan 2015 the tests were hardcoding years like 64 that was interpreted as '1964' until 31 Dec 2014 and now are interpreted as 2064, causing test failures. The patch chooses the year dynamically to get consistent results regardless of the current year. (Closes: #775628)

    2011-09-12 - Florian Schlichting <> libdate-calc-perl (6.3-1) unstable; urgency=low [ Jonathan Yu ] * New upstream release + Date::Calc now provides a PurePerl implementation (identical to Date::Pcalc, which lives on in its separate namespace). + The XS part that previously differentiated Date::Calc from Date::Pcalc has been moved into Date::Calc::XS, which will automatically be used when available. * Added myself to Uploaders and Copyright * Now requires Bit::Vector 7.1 * Examples have been removed, remove 'examples' * Move .docs to * Remove override from rules (examples are gone) * Change control description to note that this is no longer based on an interface to C (it's PurePerl) * This package is now Arch: all because the XS is moved * Updated copyright information * Added a NEWS entry to explain that the XS is separated [ Ansgar Burchardt ] * Update patch spelling.patch. * Email change: Ansgar Burchardt -> * debian/control: Convert Vcs-* fields to Git. [ Salvatore Bonaccorso ] * Email change: Salvatore Bonaccorso -> * debian/copyright: Replace DEP5 Format-Specification URL from to URL. [ Florian Schlichting ] * Clarify the relationship between Date::Calc, Date::Calc::XS and Date::Pcalc above and in debian/NEWS. * Depend on the actual version of Carp::Clan that this module says it depends on. * Bump S-V and compat (no change). * Delete unnecessary d/clean and unused d/patches/SvPV.patch * Refresh spelling.patch. * Add myself to Uploaders and Copyright.

    2010-08-26 - Ansgar Burchardt <> libdate-calc-perl (6.0-2) unstable; urgency=low * Team Upload. * Use SvPV to stringify the SV in case it is not already a string. (Closes: #558272) + new patch: SvPV.patch + Add build-dep on perl (>= 5.10.1) | libtest-simple-perl (>= 0.88) and libtest-exception-perl for included test. * Use source format 3.0 (quilt). * debian/copyright: Formatting changes for current DEP-5 proposal; refer to /usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-1. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.1.

    2009-10-08 - Salvatore Bonaccorso <> libdate-calc-perl (6.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release * Add debian/NEWS to refer to the backwards compatibility notes for new upstream version.

    2009-09-13 - Salvatore Bonaccorso <> libdate-calc-perl (5.8-1) unstable; urgency=low [ Ryan Niebur ] * Update jawnsy's email address [ Salvatore Bonaccorso ] * New upstream release * debian/control: - Add myself to Uploaders. - Correct Build-Depends on debhelper. We need (>= 7.0.50~) since debian/rules uses override target. * debian/copyright: Update upstream's email address. * debian/docs: Drop copy of EXAMPLES.txt since it is already in debian/examples. [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/watch: remove call to uupdate.
