This class is Windows-Only.
: TimeZone ;
Represents a time zone from the Windows registry. Unfortunately, Windows
does not use the TZ Database. To use the TZ Database, use
PosixTimeZone (which reads its information from the TZ Database
files on disk) on Windows by providing the TZ Database files and telling
PosixTimeZone where the directory holding them is.
The TZ Database files and Windows' time zone information frequently
do not match. Windows has many errors with regards to when DST switches
occur (especially for historical dates). Also, the TZ Database files
include far more time zones than Windows does. So, for accurate
time zone information, use the TZ Database files with
PosixTimeZone rather than
WindowsTimeZone. However, because
WindowsTimeZone uses Windows system calls to deal with the time,
it's far more likely to match the behavior of other Windows programs.
Be aware of the differences when selecting a method.
WindowsTimeZone does not exist on Posix systems.

||Takes the number of hnsecs (100 ns) since midnight, January 1st, 1 A.D. in UTC time (i.e. std time) and returns whether DST is in effect in this time zone at the given point in time.|
||Returns a list of the names of the time zones installed on the
system. The list returned by WindowsTimeZone contains the Windows
TZ names, not the TZ Database names. However,
||Takes the number of hnsecs (100 ns) since midnight, January 1st, 1 A.D. in this time zone's time and converts it to UTC (i.e. std time).|
||Takes the number of hnsecs (100 ns) since midnight, January 1st, 1 A.D. in UTC time (i.e. std time) and converts it to this time zone's time.|
||Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.|
||Compare with another Object obj.|
||Compute hash function for Object.|
||Convert Object to a human readable string.|
||Returns what the offset from UTC is at the given std time. It includes the DST offset in effect at that time (if any).|
