in reply to Difficult on use time

In the directory identified by

perl -V:sitelib

Add the following to sitecustomize.pl

require POSIX; $ENV{TZ} = 'UTC'; POSIX::tzset(); 1;

(Create it if it doesn't exist.)

    Thanks for introducing me the sitecustomize.pl. This is new for me to notice! However, could you explain a little for what purpose of this work is supposed to be done ? Though, still can't do the trick I want. what I would expect is :
    $tm = time; @gmt = gmtime ( $tm ) ; @local = localtime ( $tm ); # and @gmt should identical to @local
    This could happen if I change my system tz to GMT+0

      They are identical

      $tm=time; print scalar(gmtime($tm)), "\n"; print scalar(localtime($tm)), "\n"; require POSIX; $ENV{TZ} = 'UTC'; POSIX::tzset(); print scalar(gmtime($tm)), "\n"; print scalar(localtime($tm)), "\n";

        Oops... Sorry that's my fault again... what I think if I am working in GMT+0.. besides the gmt time and localtime goes the same, I would expect the return time is local time based.
