in thread Time Zones and Users

From Time::Zone (which is the same as Time::Timezone iirc):

$TZ = defined($ENV{'TZ'}) ? ( $ENV{'TZ'} ? $ENV{'TZ'} : 'GMT' ) : '' unless $TZ;
Where $TZ is taken as the first argument (to the functions needing a base timezone). =)

So, in other words, you can pass it a value and it does not rely on there being a TZ environment variable.

    Wow. It would be nice if this module came with some documentation. Am I supposed to differentiate between *st/*dt (ie, weather daylight savings is "on" or "off") or can it do it itself? Looking at the code, I'm guessing it wouldn't help me much in that department.
