ParseInLocation in Go

ParseInLocation is like Parse but differs in two important ways. First, in the absence of time zone information, Parse interprets a time as UTC; ParseInLocation interprets the time as in the given location. Second, when given a zone offset or abbreviation, Parse tries to match it against the Local location; ParseInLocation uses the given location.

package main

import (

func main() {
	loc, _ := time.LoadLocation("Europe/Berlin")

	const longForm = "Jan 2, 2006 at 3:04pm (MST)"
	t, _ := time.ParseInLocation(longForm, "Jul 9, 2012 at 5:02am (CEST)", loc)

	// Note: without explicit zone, returns time in given location.
	const shortForm = "2006-Jan-02"
	t, _ = time.ParseInLocation(shortForm, "2012-Jul-09", loc)
