Hello,

I'd like to reference the Tues 03 Oct '06 thread with subject:

RE: Using ENV{'TZ'} in mod_perl

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_...0.mbox/browser

The thread seemed to die off. Still, is there a way to use $ENV{TZ}
to modify the behavior of localtime? I get the same result on
mod_perl 1.99_16 and 2.0.3. PerlTaintCheck is off for
both. POSIX::tzset() does not correct the mis(?)behavior. I'd like
to get this to work with the apache 2.0.52 + mod_perl 1.99_16 setup.

BTW, This did work way back on apache 1.3.27 + mod_perl 1.27.

### Test script

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;
use POSIX qw(tzset tzname);

print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";

$ENV{'TZ'} = 'US/Eastern';
POSIX::tzset();
my $eastern = localtime();
my ($estd, $edst) = POSIX::tzname();

foreach my $tmp (sort keys %ENV) {
printf("%-30s:%s\n",$tmp,$ENV{$tmp});
}

print "\n";

$ENV{'TZ'} = 'US/Pacific';
POSIX::tzset();
my $pacific = localtime();
my ($pstd, $pdst) = POSIX::tzname();

print
"Eastern: $eastern\n",
"Eastern: std: $estd dst: $edst\n",
"Pacific: $pacific\n",
"Pacific: std: $pstd dst: $pdst\n",
;
