Time- and date-based information plays a significant role in our lives and, accordingly, programmers must commonly wrangle with temporal data on a regular basis. When was a tutorial published? Is the pricing information for a particular product recent? What time did the office assistant log into the accounting system? At what hour of the day does the corporate Web site see the most visitor traffic? These and countless other time-oriented questions come about on a regular basis, making the proper accounting of such matters absolutely crucial to the success of your programming efforts.
