Howdy, perl -MDateTime::Format::ICal -e 'DateTime::Format::ICal->parse_datetime("TZID=America/New_York:20070311T023000")' Invalid local time for date in time zone: America/New_York RFC 5545 (which obsoletes 2445) says ( [...] If the local time described does not occur (when changing from standard to daylight time), the DATE-TIME value is interpreted using the UTC offset before the gap in local times. Thus, TZID=America/New_York:20070311T023000 indicates March 11, 2007 at 3:30 A.M. EDT (UTC-04:00), one hour after 1:30 A.M. EST (UTC-05:00). Thanks! -- Matthew Horsfall (alh)
