ZonedDateTime minusNanos() method in Java with Examples
minusNanos() method of a ZonedDateTime class used to subtract the number of nanoseconds from this ZonedDateTime and return a copy of ZonedDateTime after subtraction.This method works on the instant timeline and subtracting one nanosecond return the timeline of one nanosecond earlier. Note that this method is a different approach to that used by days, months and years. This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

public ZonedDateTime minusNanos(long nanoseconds)
Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter nanoseconds which represents the nanoseconds to subtract, It can be negative.
Return value: This method returns a ZonedDateTime based on this date-time with the nanoseconds subtracted.
Exception: This method throws DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range.
Below programs illustrate the minusNanos() method:
