Description

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.

Usage

1
with_tz(time, tzone = "")

Arguments

time

a POSIXct, POSIXlt, Date, chron date-time object or a data.frame object. When a data.frame all POSIXt elements of a data.frame are processed with with_tz and new data.frame is returned.

tzone

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.
