  Sample input:
time.UTCtoLocal ( GetAsTimestamp ( BE_UTCMilliseconds/1000 ) ; -5 ; 1 )
  Sample output:
7/13/2017 4:04:03.7 PM

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Takes UTC (GMT) time stamp and converts it to local time assuming the correct time zone offset in hours +/-h and whether or not the local area observes Daylight Saving. The start and end dates for daylight saving may need to be adjusted for locale outside of the U.S.

Depends on function written by Koji Takeuchi, Splash, Inc. for the DateByNthDOW function.
