I am trying to use Date::Manip to display the correct time according to the TZ specified for any time() since epoch. Here's the test code: use Date::Manip; $ENV{TZ}='EST05EDT'; my $tz = Date_TimeZone; print "TZ: $tz\n"; my $date = ParseDate("today"); my $pdate = UnixDate($date, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S %Z"); print "Today: $pdate\n"; $date = time() - 86400*2; $date = ParseDateString ("epoch $date"); $pdate = UnixDate($date, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S %Z"); print "Two days ago: $pdate\n"; Note that 2 days ago it was EDT.. Hoewever the test run results in: TZ: EST Today: 10/31/2005 10:58:42 EST Two days ago: 10/29/2005 10:58:42 EST
Fixed in 6.xx
