NAME

DateTime::TimeZone - A Raku library for working with Time Zones

SYNOPSIS

use DateTime::TimeZone;

say tz-offset("-01:00");  # -3600

say timezone("Europe/Amsterdam").Int;  # 3600 or 7200, depending on DST

say timezone<Europe/Amsterdam>;  # DateTime::TimeZone::Zone::Europe::Amsterdam

my $dt = DateTime.now;
say to-timezone("America/Detroit", $dt);
say $dt.&to-timezone("America/Detroit");

sub frobnicate(IsTimeZone $timezone) {
    say "$timezone is a valid timezone";
}

DESCRIPTION

DateTime::TimeZone is an app-facing set of friendly subroutines for working with timezones.

SUBSETS

multi sub frobnicate(IsTimeZone $timezone) {
    say "$timezone is a valid timezone";
}
multi sub frobnicate(Str:D $string) {
    say "$string is *NOT* a valid timezone";
}

IsTimeZone

The IsTimeZone subset can be used see if a given parameter is a known timezone.

SUBROUTINES

tz-offset(Str:D $offset-string) --> Int:D

Parses common offset strings (such as "01:00" and "-03:00") and returns an Int value.

timezone() --> Map:D

Returns a Map of the names of the supported timezones, and the name of their associated DateTime::Timezone::Zone:: class.

timezone(IsTimeZone $name, DateTime:D $datetime?) --> DateTime::TimeZone:D

Returns a DateTime::TimeZone object representing the zone passed to it. These objects provide an .Int call, so they may be used directly as the :timezone parameter for a DateTime object.

This will support any timezone listed in the Olson database.

The $datetime is used to calculate the offset depending on Daylight Savings Time rules for the given Time Zone.

If $datetime is not passed, it assumes DateTime.now();

timezone(IsTimeZone $name, Numeric:D $epoch) --> DateTime::TimeZone:D

Returns a DateTime::TimeZone object representing the zone passed to it for the given epoch value.

to-timezone(IsTimeZone $name, DateTime:D $datetime) --> DateTime:D

A shortcut for: $datetime.in-timezone(timezone($name, $datetime));

to-timezone(DateTime:D $datetime, IsTimeZone $name) --> DateTime:D

Same as the Str,DateTime candidate, but allows being used as a method.

COMMAND LINE HELPERS

dtz

The dtz script allows you to enter either an epoch value, a YYYY-MM-DD string for midnight on a date, or a YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS... string for a date/time, and an optional timezone (default: UTC). It outputs the DateTime string for that time in that timezone.
