This is wrong:

use Date::Manip::Date; my $date = "2011-07-24T17:46:33Z"; ... my $err = $date->convert([$localzone]);

Before you can call methods, you first need to create an object:

my $date = new Date::Manip::Date;

Then you need to set the date & time value into that object using the appropriate method(s).

Then you need to invoke the convert method passing a timezone in one of the formats documented within the modules POD.

Try reading the POD.
