TermCode — A perl module used to provide codes for the current term in various formats

Description

There are several different ways to refer to a given term. This module contains several constants which are used to differentiate the various ways to refer to a term.

TermCode::FMT_TIME
Indicates the number of seconds since the epoch as of the first second of the first month of term in local time.
TermCode::FMT_MFCF
Indicates the format used for MFCF classlist files.
TermCode::FMT_REGISTRAR
Indicates the format used by the Registrar's office, for example in the schedule of classes.
TermCode::FMT_SHORT
Indicates a commonly-used short readable form, with a letter for the term within the year followed by a 2-digit year.
TermCode::FMT_LONG
Indicates a commonly-used long readable form, with the term within the year, followed by a space, followed by a 4-digit year.

There are two functions available in the module to retrieve particular term codes.

get_termcode(month, year, format)
Given a numeric month (0-11) and a fully-specified year as would be returned by the localtime function, returns the code for the term in that month. The format used is determined by the final argument, which must be one of the constants listed above.
current_termcode(format)
Works similar to get_termcode, but uses the current month and year automatically.
