in thread How to convert time from one time zone to another

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 }

outputs:

$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?
