in thread formatting datetime with strftime

I think I improved on this version of the code. Let's suppose the original time is in the 'America/New-York' time zone and you want it in GMT, here's the new recipe:

#!perl -w use strict; use DateTime::Format::CLDR; my $datetimestring = "4/5/13 16:09"; my $cldr1 = new DateTime::Format::CLDR( pattern => 'M/d/yy HH:mm', time_zone => 'America/New_York', ); my $dt1 = $cldr1->parse_datetime($datetimestring); print $cldr1->format_datetime($dt1), "\n"; my $cldr2 = new DateTime::Format::CLDR( pattern => 'MMMM dd yyyy HH:mm:ss', locale => 'en_US', time_zone => 'America/New_York', ); $dt1->set_time_zone('GMT'); print $cldr2->format_datetime($dt1), " GMT\n";
Result:
4/5/13 16:09 April 05 2013 20:09:00 GMT
