## File Information

**Library:** Foundation

**Package:** DateTime

**Header:** Poco/LocalDateTime.h

## Description

This class represents an instant in local time (as opposed to UTC), expressed in years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds based on the Gregorian calendar.

In addition to the date and time, the class also maintains a time zone differential, which denotes the difference in seconds from UTC to local time, i.e. UTC = local time - time zone differential.

Although `LocalDateTime` supports relational and arithmetic operators, all date/time comparisons and date/time arithmetic should be done in UTC, using the `DateTime` or `Timestamp` class for better performance. The relational operators normalize the dates/times involved to UTC before carrying out the comparison.

The time zone differential is based on the input date and time and current time zone. A number of constructors accept an explicit time zone differential parameter. These should not be used since daylight savings time processing is impossible since the time zone is unknown. Each of the constructors accepting a tzd parameter have been marked as deprecated and may be removed in a future revision.
