NAME

DateTime::TimeZone::OffsetOnly - A DateTime::TimeZone object that just contains an offset  

SYNOPSIS

  my $offset_tz = DateTime::TimeZone->new( name => '-0300' );

 

DESCRIPTION

This class is used to provide the DateTime::TimeZone API needed by DateTime.pm, but with a fixed offset. An object in this class always returns the same offset as was given in its constructor, regardless of the date.  

USAGE

This class has the same methods as a real time zone object, but the "category()" method returns undef.  

DateTime::TimeZone::OffsetOnly->new ( offset => $offset )

The value given to the offset parameter must be a string such as ``+0300''. Strings will be converted into numbers by the "DateTime::TimeZone::offset_as_seconds()" function.  

$tz->offset_for_datetime( $datetime )

No matter what date is given, the offset provided to the constructor is always used.  

$tz->name()

 

$tz->short_name_for_datetime()

Both of these methods return the offset in string form.
