data TimeZoneOffset Source

The number of minutes that this timezone is offset from UTC. Can be positive, negative, or zero.

minsToOffset :: Int -> Maybe TimeZoneOffsetSource

Convert minutes to a time zone offset. I'm having a hard time deciding whether to be liberal or strict in what to accept here. Currently it is somewhat strict in that it will fail if absolute value is greater than 840 minutes; currently the article at http:en.wikipedia.orgwikiList_of_time_zones_by_UTC_offset says there is no offset greater than 14 hours, or 840 minutes.

data Hours Source


intToHours :: Int -> Maybe HoursSource

succeeds if 0 <= x < 24

intToMinutes :: Int -> Maybe MinutesSource

succeeds if 0 <= x < 60

intToSeconds :: Int -> Maybe SecondsSource

succeeds if 0 <= x < 61 (to allow for leap seconds)

data DateTime Source

A DateTime is a a local date and time, along with a time zone offset. The Eq and Ord instances are derived; therefore, two DateTime instances will not be equivalent if the time zone offsets are different, even if they are the same instant. To compare one DateTime to another, you probably want to use toUTC and compare those. To see if two DateTime are the same instant, use sameInstant.



sameInstant :: DateTime -> DateTime -> BoolSource

Are these DateTimes the same instant in time, after adjusting for local timezones?

showDateTime :: DateTime -> StringSource

Shows a DateTime in a pretty way.
