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 AUTHORS

This module provides routines to format dates. They correspond to the libc routines. &strftime() supports a pretty good set of coversions -- more than most C libraries. strftime supports a pretty good set of conversions. The POSIX module has very similar functionality. You should consider using it instead if you do not have allergic reactions to system libraries. GENESIS
