NAME
       Time::Zone -- miscellaneous timezone manipulations routines

SYNOPSIS
	       use Time::Zone;
	       print tz2zone();
	       print tz2zone($ENV{'TZ'});
	       print tz2zone($ENV{'TZ'}, time());
	       print tz2zone($ENV{'TZ'}, undef, $isdst);
	       $offset = tz_local_offset();
	       $offset = tz_offset($TZ);

DESCRIPTION
       This is a collection of miscellaneous timezone manipulation routines.

       "tz2zone()" parses the TZ environment variable and returns a timezone string suitable for
       inclusion in date(1)-like output.  It opionally takes a timezone string, a time, and a is-
       dst flag.

       "tz_local_offset()" determins the offset from GMT time in seconds.  It only does the
       calculation once.

       "tz_offset()" determines the offset from GMT in seconds of a specified timezone.

       "tz_name()" determines the name of the timezone based on its offset
