2008Q2 Grant Proposal - Make localtime() and gmtime() Work Past 2038

  • Name: Michael G Schwern
  • Project Title: Make localtime() and gmtime() Work Past 2038
  • Synopsis: Prevent the Y2038 bug from effecting Perl users. This means make localtime() and gmtime() work for times beyond 2038. Do this regardless of the state of the system C libraries. A working solution, in C, already exists. This grant is to finish the portability issues, write additional tests and change perl to use the repaired C library.
