Time::Timezone(3) miscellaneous timezone manipulations routines


use Time::Timezone;
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);


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-like output. It optionally takes a timezone string, a time, and a is-dst flag.

"tz_local_offset()" determines 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
