DateTime

Hi,

I've just checked out this: http://ruby.cenophobie.com/RubyCheat.pdf
Ruby cheat sheet. On the second page, DateTime is mentioned but when I
try the following:

DateTime::now

or

DateTime.now

it says that the constant DateTime is uninitalized.

Can anyone help?

Sure. You should add this line:

require ‘date’

you can find some more examples on date/time and other simple exercises on my blog:

HTH,

Put

   require 'date'

before using DateTime.

              matz.

"Lucas Holland" typed:

DateTime::now
or
DateTime.now

it says that the constant DateTime is uninitalized.

There is also "Time.now" which, as I see it, does not require any
module(s) to be loaded explicitly by the user. I haven't checked yet, but
do the two differ in any other way than the format in which they report
time?

Thanks a lot, Peter. It works fine now.

This older thread might clear up the confusion between DateTime and Time:

An insightful explanation. Thanks, Rob.
