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

version 2.62

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

This class is used to provide the DateTime::TimeZone API needed by, 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.

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

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.

Both of these methods return the offset in string form.
