in reply to TimeZone convert problem.

DateTime is the canonical module for handling dates and times. DateTime::Format::ISO8601 and various other DateTime::Formats are handy for parsing textual dates and times.

But you don't want to search for timezone abbreviations. Really, you don't. To take just one example, when you say EST do you mean UTC-5 (North America), UTC-3 (Brazil), or UTC+10 (Australia)?

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
