A Date with CPAN, Part 5: Everything's Relative

[This is a post in my latest long-ass series.  You may want to begin at the beginning.  I do not promise that the next post in the series will be next week.  Just that I will eventually finish it, someday.  Unless I get hit by a bus.

IMPORTANT NOTE!  When I provide you links to code on GitHub, I’m giving you links to particular commits.  This allows me to show you the code as it was at the time the blog post was written and insures that the code references will make sense in the context of this post.  Just be aware that the latest version of the code may be very different.]

Last time I actually got down to it and wrote some code: Date::Easy now has a date constructor for turning arbitrary human-readable strings into date objects.  Now it’s time to expand on that and allow even more formats.

But first, we’ll do a bit of math.
