[San-Diego-pm] Converting Time from UTC

There may be a DateTime formatter module that includes your particular
format. For example:
There are many to choose from, so you might want to try a few and see
which one does the best (and possibly fastest) job. Each one will let
you go straight from a string to a DateTime object:
my $parser = DateTime::Format::Natural->new();
my $dt = $parser->parse_datetime($date_string);
...and from there you can use DateTime functions as you described.
Hope that helps.
