in reply to DateTime::Format::Strptime Parsing Seems to have a Problem?

Hello ozboomer,

It looks that fellow Monks have already answered your question. Just for fun here is an alternative solution using Date::Manip.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Date::Manip; use feature 'say'; sub getDate { my $tz = new Date::Manip::TZ; return $tz->convert_from_local(ParseDate(shift), 'Australia/Victor +ia'); } sub getDateFormat { my ($date, $from, $to) = @_; return UnixDate(Date_ConvTZ(ParseDate($date), $from, $to), '%d/%m/ +%Y %r'); } my @dates = ( "now", "03/18/2019 03:15:00", "03/18/2019 03:15:00 am", "03/18/2019 03:15:00 pm", ); foreach my $date (@dates) { my ( $err, $date, $offset, $isdst, $abbrev ) = getDate($date); say "Err: $err" if $err; say "Date: " . join(":", @$date); # say "@$date[2]/@$date[1]/@$date[0] @$date[3]:@$date[4]:@$date[5] +"; # say "Offset: " . join(":", @$offset); # say "Isdst: $isdst"; # say "Abbrev: $abbrev"; say getDateFormat($date,"CST", "AEDT"); } __END__ $ perl Date: 2019:4:5:2:3:8 05/04/2019 03:00:00 AM Date: 2019:3:18:13:15:0 18/03/2019 03:00:00 AM Date: 2019:3:18:13:15:0 18/03/2019 03:00:00 AM Date: 2019:3:19:1:15:0 19/03/2019 03:00:00 AM

On the solution provided above I have two different functions. One is simply converting the time from the local timezone getDate (read more Date::Manip::TZ) and the other is converting from the timezone provided to the function getDateFormat (read more for timezone Date::Manip::Zones). The first function unfortunately it returns the date already formatted so there the format is fixed. The second it returns to your desired format.

Hope this helps, BR.
