Date-Simple (3.03) *****

I just love Date::Simple. It does exactly what it advertises to do: date calculations without any time component. It does it reliably, and with a very simple and intuitive interface.

I've never benchmarked it, so I can't comment on speed, but it was never the bottleneck of my applications, so it's reasonably fast :-)

Date-Simple (3.02) ***

Another lovely date module for converting between ISO and other formats. Again, it only handles dates, not dates and times. So useless for my needs.

Date-Simple (3.02) ****

A good idea to have a very light-weight and quite fast date module that supports so many rich features (arithmetic, various formats).

One niggle: dates can be made from 2005-12-06, but not 2005-12-6. It'd be nice if it did indeed produce a Date object, but I'd settle for a warning... It's only a niggle, but I write it here because I use this module in almost every project.
