DateTime::TimeZone::Floating - A time zone that is always local

version 2.62

my $floating_tz = DateTime::TimeZone::Floating->new;

This class is used to provide the DateTime::TimeZone API needed by, but for floating times, as defined by the RFC 2445 spec. A floating time has no time zone, and has an effective offset of zero.

This class has the same methods as a real time zone object. The short_name_for_datetime() method returns the string "floating" and the category() method returns "undef".
