= gmtime()

Overrides the core gmtime function. The Time::tm object returned has methods with the same names as the structure fields they return. That is, to return the field mon , use the mon method:

use Time::gmtime;
$gm = gmtime();
print $gm->mon;
The field names (and therefore the method names) are the same as the names of the fields in the tm structure in the C file time.h : sec , min , hour , mday , mon , year , wday , yday , and isdst . You can access the fields either with the methods or by importing the fields into your namespace with the :FIELDS import tag and prepending tm_ to the method name (for example, $tm_mon ).
