DateTime::TimeZone::OlsonDB - An object to represent an Olson time zone database VERSION
version 1.51 SYNOPSIS
This module parses the Olson database time zone definition files and creates various objects representing time zone data. Each time zone is broken down into several parts. The first piece is an observance, which is an offset from UTC and an abbreviation. A single zone may contain many observances, reflecting historical changes in that time zone over time. An observance may also refer to a set of rules. Rules are named, and may apply to many different zones. For example, the "US" rules apply to most of the time zones in the US, unsurprisingly. Rules are made of an offset from standard time and a definition of when that offset changes. Changes can be a one time thing, or they can recur at regular times through a span of years. Each rule may have an associated letter, which is used to generate an abbreviated name for the time zone, along with the offset's abbreviation. For example, if the offset's abbreviation is "C%sT", and the a rule specifies the letter "S", then the abbreviation when that rule is in effect is "CST". USAGE

DateTime::TimeZone::OffsetOnly - A DateTime::TimeZone object that just contains an offset VERSION
version 1.63 SYNOPSIS
my $offset_tz = DateTime::TimeZone->new( name => '-0300' ); DESCRIPTION
This class is used to provide the DateTime::TimeZone API needed by, but with a fixed offset. An object in this class always returns the same offset as was given in its constructor, regardless of the date. USAGE
This class has the same methods as a real time zone object, but the "category()" method returns undef. DateTime::TimeZone::OffsetOnly->new ( offset => $offset ) The value given to the offset parameter must be a string such as "+0300". Strings will be converted into numbers by the "DateTime::TimeZone::offset_as_seconds()" function. $tz->offset_for_datetime( $datetime ) No matter what date is given, the offset provided to the constructor is always used. $tz->name() $tz->short_name_for_datetime() Both of these methods return the offset in string form.
