LocalTime - A wrapper of class DateTime with varied formatters depending on time zone entry


use LocalTime;


LocalTime is a wrapper class holding an instance of the Raku DateTime class. It was created to either add a local timezone (TZ) abbreviation to a time string or show either none or other TZ information depending on the use (or non-use) of the named variable :tz-abbrev. Following are the formatting effects of the various input conditions:

class DateTime

class LocalTime

Note for US TZ entries the user can enter either 'st' or 'dt' (case insensitive) and the correct form will be used for the time of year.

Currently only US abbreviations are in the 'use'd Timezones::US database, but a future modification will add others (perhaps in other languages also). PRs are welcome!
