Time::Zone(3pm)       User Contributed Perl Documentation      Time::Zone(3pm)



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-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
