You can add, subtract and even multiply instances, pickle and copy them and convert the results to strings, COM dates, ticks and some other more esoteric values. In addition, there are several convenient constructors and formatters at hand to greatly simplify dealing with dates and times in real-world applications.
In addition to providing an easy-to-use Python interface the package also exports a comfortable C API interface for other extensions to build upon. This is especially interesting for database applications which often have to deal with date/time values.
This Debian package is built for Python 2.1.
The python*-egenix-mx* packages supersede the old python-mx* packages found in earlier Debian versions. A notable difference: The modules (e.g. DateTime) now have the prefix "mx." in the namespace. So, for example, if you have used the old DateTime module in a program, you should instead use mx.Datetime. E.g.: # Old: import DateTime # New: from mx import DateTime
