# create using Time::Peice object
my $date = HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::DateHeader->new(

I opted to not use DateTime (by default) for this class since it is not a core
module and can be a memory hog at times. That said, it should be noted that
DateTime objects are compatible with this class. You will need to pass in a
DateTime instance to "new" and after that
everything should behave properly. If you want
"new_from_string" to inflate strings to
DateTime objects you will need to override that method yourself.
- Returns the underlying Time::Piece object.
- "new_from_string ( $date_header_string )"
- This will take an HTTP header Date string and parse it into and
- These delegate to the underlying Time::Piece object.
