1 liner to get time zone offset (tz database)

October 7th, 2012, 3:26 pm

Hello folks, i am wondering if there is C function to convert a datetime+timezone to another time zone. something similar to mysql's convert_tz function, e.g.select convert_tz('2011-06-30 20:20:00','US/Eastern','GMT');... returns '2011-07-01 00:20:00' ...is there anything similar in C? I mean something really simple. It can also also return the offset between two time zones for a given date.
