This is a sys-time method for the as_zoned_time() generic.

Converting to a zoned-time from a sys-time retains the underlying duration, but changes the printed time, depending on the zone that you choose. Remember that sys-times are interpreted as UTC.

If you want to retain the printed time, try converting to a zoned-time from a naive-time, which is a time point with a yet-to-be-determined time zone.

# S3 method for clock_sys_time
as_zoned_time(x, zone, ...)

Arguments

x [clock_sys_time] A sys-time to convert to a zoned-time. [character(1)] The zone to convert to. These dots are for future extensions and must be empty.

Value

A zoned-time vector.

Examples

x <- as_sys_time(year_month_day(2019, 02, 01, 02, 30, 00))
x
#> <time_point<sys><second>[1]>
#> [1] "2019-02-01 02:30:00"
# Since sys-time is interpreted as UTC, converting to a zoned-time with
# a zone of UTC retains the printed time
x_utc <- as_zoned_time(x, "UTC")
x_utc
#> <zoned_time<second><UTC>[1]>
#> [1] "2019-02-01 02:30:00+00:00"
# Converting to a different zone results in a different printed time,
# which corresponds to the exact same point in time, just in a different
# part of the work
x_ny <- as_zoned_time(x, "America/New_York")
x_ny
#> <zoned_time<second><America/New_York>[1]>
#> [1] "2019-01-31 21:30:00-05:00"
