Probably to change the timezone at a guess.

    But the epoch isn't effected by timezone. It's the number of seconds since 00:00 on 1st Jan 1970 GMT. I can't see how you'll ever get different answers from:

    print strftime '%s', localtime;


    print time;

    Am I missing something?

      No I don't think you are missing something, it was just the only semi-plausible reason that I could think of that someone might think they want to do that.
