DESCRIPTION

This module is used to calculate leap seconds for a given Rata Die day. It is used when DateTime.pm cannot compile the XS version of this code.

This library is known to be accurate for dates until december 2005.

There are no leap seconds before 1972, because that's the year this system was implemented.

Returns the number of leap seconds for a given day, in the range -2 .. 2.
