TimeZoning odditiesby JPaul (Hermit)

JPaul has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to get a very simple timezone display going without having to install the rather heavy DateManip or DateTime groups of modules (Which seemingly require copious amounts of modules).
Tue Nov 1 17:40:54 2005 Tue 01 Nov 2005 05:40:54 PM ESTHowever, if I try the following:
Tue Nov 1 16:41:08 2005 Tue 01 Nov 2005 04:41:08 PM CST Tue Nov 1 16:41:08 2005 Tue 01 Nov 2005 04:41:08 PM EST
Which is clearly more than a little odd.
I can, of course, move to using one of the larger modules - that is a valid option, but I'd prefer to not have to resort to doing so when it appears localtime() should be able to handle this properly.
