end

Import the module or modules holding the functions you want to use.

defmodule MyModule do
  import GoodTimes            # core functions.
  import GoodTimes.Boundary   # find boundaries between time units.
  import GoodTimes.Convert    # convert between dates, datetimes and times.
  import GoodTimes.Date       # functions operating on and returning dates.
  import GoodTimes.Generate   # functions generating streams of time units.

Known limitations
