Time::TAI::Simple

Posted 07-30-2014 at 10:09 PM by ttk

Two things: First, my wife tells me this blog's interface sucks, and she hates trying to read it. Apparently it's horrible for users who do not have an LQ account. I'm kicking the tires on some alternatives.

Second, I've uploaded Time::TAI::Simple to CPAN. It provides a high-resolution count of seconds elapsed since the beginning of the epoch, much like Time::HiRes, but un-"corrects" for the IETF's leapsecond adjustments.

This means:
  • The number it returns is the number of seconds actually elapsed,
  • The number it returns will never "stand still" or go backwards,
  • The number will not jump around from NTP-related foolishness.

It's a bit of a niche library, but there have been times when I really wanted it, and now it's on CPAN.

I'd like to get my Physics::Ballistics module uploaded next, but really should stop neglecting Zacl.
