Get date-time in a different time zone
with_tz returns a date-time as it would appear in a
different time zone. The actual moment of time measured
does not change, just the time zone it is measured in.
with_tz defaults to the Universal Coordinated time zone
(UTC) when an unrecognized time zone is inputted. See
Sys.timezone for more information on how R
recognizes time zones.
with_tz(time, tzone = "")
- a POSIXct, POSIXlt, Date, or chron date-time object.
- a character string containing the time zone to convert to. R must recognize the name contained in the string as a time zone on your system.
- a POSIXct object in the updated time zone
x <- as.POSIXct("2009-08-07 00:00:01", tz = "America/New_york") with_tz(x, "GMT") # "2009-08-07 04:00:01 GMT"
