Yes, that's the difference between UTC measured time and GMT measured time.

Could this problem be related to the daylight savings?

Well it seems there is some kind of a problem with the os.time()
function when a table is passed to it. The result is one hour less
than it should be (one hour less than the time in the table supplied).

Should I leave the gmtime() function in place and commit the script as is?

Should I diagnose and fix the problem with the os.time() function or
should I leave that to the bug wranglers?

o The gmtime() function can simply be:


I think there was also an error somewhere in your gmtime function
because the two produce different results.

The results are off by one hour. AFAIK my calculations are ok, unless
my mind's slipped :P
The os.time(os.date("!*t")) doesn't give the time which may be used by
the Quova API, the gmtime() and ostime() functions do. I'll research
this a bit later, I've left the gmtime() as is. I'd like to explore
lldp and lltd before the meeting.

o The name for your "const" table worries me. Can you change it to
something else that doesn't resemble a C keyword? :)


Overall I like the script. Is there a reason you didn't elect to go
with separate scripts with "subnames"

That was a good idea that I overlooked. As you may notice by the
attachments I've split the files.
