NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     timezone -- return the timezone abbreviation

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     char *
     timezone(int zone, int dst);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This interface is for compatibility only; it is impossible to reliably
     map timezone's arguments to a time zone abbreviation.  See ctime(3).

     The timezone() function returns a pointer to a time zone abbreviation for
     the specified zone and dst values.  The zone argument is the number of
     minutes west of GMT and dst is non-zero if daylight savings time is in

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     A timezone() function appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.
