Actually I don't think the statement (that parent's code will produce an incorrect time during DST) is correct but neither do I think Robin's surmise that the code in Re: How to convert time from one time zone to another will "work on Windows" is universally correct. Under Windows7:
#!/usr/bin/perl use 5.014; # convert TZ say "\$ENV{TZ}: $ENV{TZ}"; # var had to be manually added on stock + W7 { local $ENV{TZ} = "EST+05"; say "In New York, it is " . localtime(); } { local $ENV{TZ} = "IST-05:30"; # does not return c +orrect time on W7 say "In Mumbai, it is " . localtime(); # but, rather, same + as NY localtime }


$ENV{TZ}: EST5EDT # TZ is set but this does + # not appear to be defaul +t (for Win7) In New York, it is Mon Apr 2 10:41:23 2012 # correct In Mumbai, it is Mon Apr 2 10:41:23 2012 #obviously wrong

But this may be the result of a misconception on my part about 'doze ENV and its vars.
    Anyone care to explicate?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
