Hi Monks!

Is it possible to get the difference from GMT in hours? My $ENV{TZ } is not set, however, the following code shows some values:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use POSIX; my ($std, $dst) = POSIX::tzname(); print "std: $std\n"; print "dst: $dst\n"; print "TZ: " . ($ENV{TZ} || "Unset") . "\n";
Result is:
on Win32 machine: std: Russian Standard Time dst: Russian Daylight Time TZ: Unset on linux machine: std: GMT dst: GMT TZ: Unset
Where does perl get those values? At he same time, php code:
<?php $stz = date("Z"); echo $stz/60/60; ?>
shows 4..

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
