Data::ICal::TimeZone - timezones for Data::ICal


  use Data::ICal;
  use Data::ICal::TimeZone;

  my $cal = Data::ICal->new;
  my $zone = Data::ICal::TimeZone->new( timezone => 'Europe/London' );
  $cal->add_event( $zone->definition );
  my $event = Data::ICal::Entry::Event->new;
      summary => 'Go to the pub',
      dtstart => [ '20070316T180000' , { TZID => $zone->timezone } ],
      dtend   => [ '20070316T230000' , { TZID => $zone->timezone } ],
  $cal->add_event( $event );


Data::ICal::TimeZone provides a mechanism for adding the Olsen
standard timezones to your ical documents, plus a copy of the Olsen
timezone database.

=head1 METHODS


=item new( timezone => 'zone_name' )

Returns a timezone object, this will be a Data::ICal::TimeZone::Object

Returns a false value upon failure to locate the specified timezone or
load it's data class; this false value is a Class::ReturnValue object
and can be queried as to its C<error_message>.

=item zones

Returns the a list of the supported timezones




=item No timezone specified

You failed to specify a C<timezone> argument to ->new

=item No such timezone '%s'

The C<timezone> you specifed to ->new wasn't one this module knows of.

=item Couldn't require Data::ICal::TimeZone::Object::%s: %s

The underlying class didn't compile cleanly.
