How to see the time difference of the same day for different time zones?

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello!
Could anybody help me in time difference issue?
I have a vector of dates with time, char type, like this: "29-Jan-2016 09:00:00". I would like to see time difference for each date-time between Frankfurt and New York, accounting for daylight saving changes. For example, for today "21-Jul-2016 09:00:00" the difference is 6 hours, so I would like to see either "+6" or the time in NY corresponding to 09:00 in Frankfurt, which is "21-Jul-2016 03:00:00". How can I do that for all the dates in MatLab, adjusted for summer and winter times?
Thanks a lot!

The easiest way to do this is with a datetime object (in R2014a and later versions).

I would probably convert them all to UTC and then do the calculations. I’ve not done anything similar to what you’re doing, so you will have to experiment.

also look at tzoffset. Not sure what versions it's in
