Changes for version 1.12 - 2005-12-18
- Explicitly turn off negative epoch testing on VMS. Change #24310 from bleadperl, Craig Berry.
- In the test suite when checking on whether negative epochs are allowed, use 3 days before the epoch as a test, because just one hour before may give false positives (for example on Win32 with the Borland compiler).
- Reverted an earlier change that slightly extended the range of values for which timelocal worked (by about a day in either direction) because it could cause an incorrect answer for certain epoch values on the date of a DST change. Reported by Gisle Aas.
- Time::Local - efficiently compute time from local and GMT time
