> No. It is not converted to UTC or local time in any way.
>> The datatype 'Date' in Gambas is a point in time, aka just a number.
>> It's for example 2022.11.16 13:10:00 stored as floating point.
>> There's no additional information at all. So there is no further
>> information about a timezone or whether it is UTC.
>> Your program must decide whether it considers it being UTC or any local
>> time. I think that's pretty simple and ingenious, by the way.
> That is not true.
> The float value corresponds to the date in UTC. If you do not believe me,
> then test it. Give local date (in area of UTC+X, where X<>0) and you will
> see that the date without localization is printed as the date-X.
