Writing Hebrew Dates in Hebrew

sachss has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings, O' Wise and Knowledge,

Does anyone know how to convert a English-ize Hebrew Date such as

"15 Elul 5776" into "ט''ו אלאל תשע''ו"

without doing a lookup replacement for each part?

Or is that the only way?

    This isn’t a full answer but might get you pretty close to real/robust date handling with just a little bit of trivial Hebrew formatting, via hashes, left to do. I recommend suggesting a patch or bringing up the issue of “native” formatting to the module authors; DateTime::Calendar::Hebrew.

    #!/usr/bin/env perl use strictures; use utf8; use DateTime::Calendar::Hebrew; my $count; my %months = map {; $_ => ++$count } qw/ Nissan Iyar Sivan Tamuz Av Elul Tishrei Cheshvan Kislev Tevet Shevat AdarI AdarII /; for ( <DATA> ) { my ( $day, $month_name, $year ) = split; my $dt = DateTime::Calendar::Hebrew ->new( year => $year, month => $months{$month_name}, day => $day ); print $dt->ymd, $/; } __DATA__ 15 Elul 5776
