### Details

Calculation is always from UTC, but it is possible to correct to local time zone with tz (see Sys.timezone). For instance, tz = 'EST5EDT' converts to U.S. Eastern time, with EST or EDT based on the system's knowledge of the date for switching between the two. Set the number of digits after the decimal place for seconds, n, with options('digits.secs'=n).
