In Go language, time packages supplies functionality for determining as well as viewing time. The FixedZone() function in Go language is used to find a location that constantly uses the stated name of the zone and offset (i.e, seconds east of UTC). Moreover, this function is defined under the time package. Here, you need to import the “time” package in order to use these functions.

Syntax:

func FixedZone(name string, offset int) *Location

Here, “name” is the name of the zone, offset holds an integer and *Location is the pointer to the Location. Where “Location” forms the set of time offsets in use.

Return Value: It returns the location that constantly uses the stated zone name and offset.

Example 1:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// FixedZone() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import (
    "fmt"
    "time"
)
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Calling FixedZone method
    // with its parameter
    location := time.FixedZone("UTC-7", -7*50*50)
  
    // Prints location
    fmt.Println(location)
}

Output:

UTC-7

Here, the stated location is returned.

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// FixedZone() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import (
    "fmt"
    "time"
)
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Calling FixedZone
    // method with its parameters
    location := time.FixedZone("UTC-6", -6*40*40)
  
    // Calling Date method 
    // with all its parameters
    // that is date, time, and location
    tm := time.Date(2020, time.April, 6, 
                 9, 55, 06, 0, location)
  
    // Prints date, 
    // time and location
    fmt.Println(tm)
}

Output:

2020-04-06 09:55:06 -0240 UTC-6

Here, at first FixedZone() method is called then Date() method is called with its parameters i.e, date, time, and location and then all these parameters are returned as output.
