my $field = Plucene::Document::Field->Text(
date => freeze_date(Time::Piece $t)
DESCRIPTIONDates and times in Plucene should be serialized using the "freeze_date" function so that the Plucene::Search::DateFilter can filter on them during future searches.
my $string = freeze_date(Time::Piece $t)
This routine, exported by default, turns a "Time::Piece" object into a string in a format expected by both Plucene and Lucene.
my Time::Piece $t = Plucene::Document::DateSerializer::thaw_date($string)
This routine is not exported, and is not used by the Plucene core. It is useful for debugging dates, and simply reverses the "freeze_date" operation.
