A Real Doozie

[ #4676 ]
Yeeeoowza...

Looks like getting the timezone of the machine in Windows (and well, more usefully, the bias for local time translation) isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Sadly, Win32::Clock seems to have disappeared, so I've actually got to code it myself. How disappointing. :P

I've got to use Win32::API, and pack() nested structs for the parameter that GetTimeZoneInformation() takes. Considering I've never used pack() before for anything more than trivial, this should fun. :)

I'll get to that this evening, but for now I'm off to the Sunday Family Luncheon.
