It's not easy....

Start with

perldoc perlxs

then take a look at

man perlxstut

Finally, you might want to go take a look at Date::DateTime (which was written as a tutorial on how to do just this, IIRC).  Warning, though, perl source code is by nature convoluted and somewhat dense.  Don't expect this to be a trivial task.  You might want to take a good look at

perldoc perlguts


to see if you even have the stomach for it.

Sometimes, (most of the time) knowing how to do it doesn't get you very far, it's knowing where to look to find out.  

Unless you're willing to hire me at my standard hourly rate (I work on Wall Street), I can't do much more for you.  I've definitely given you a good start.
