It gives you either "the Fooday of the Nth week that is mostly contained in each month" or "the Fooday of the Nth week that started in each month". Its idea of a week always starts on a specified day of the week; the first week that is mostly contained in a month may start on any day from three days before the 1st of the month up to the 4th of the month. You *can* use this to get the Nth Fooday of each month, by manipulating how the weeks are delimited. Observe that each week is mostly contained in the month that contains its fourth day. If you're only interested in which month contains a specific day of the week, you just have to arrange for that day to be the fourth of the week. So to get the Nth Friday of each month, you need to tell it that the week starts on Tuesday: my $set = DateTime::Event::Recurrence->monthly(weeks => 2, days => "fr", week_start_day => "tu"); Or you can use weeks starting in the month, and tell it that the day you're interested in is the first day of the week: my $set = DateTime::Event::Recurrence->monthly(weeks => 2, days => "fr", week_start_day => "1fr"); The example in the module's documentation labelled "second tuesday of every month" is incorrect. It actually yields Tuesdays ranging from the 9th to the 15th of each month, because it is computing the Tuesdays of the second week to start in each month, with the week starting on Monday. -zeframThread Previous | Thread Next
