TIMEZONE(4)							   TIMEZONE(4)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     timezone -	set default system time	zone

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This file sets the	time zone environmental	variable TZ.

     This file is read by init(1) after	system boot up and all subsequent
     processes inherit TZ in their environment.	 Other variables than TZ may
     also be set in this file, for programs that are run from init.  Some
     programs started by init reset all	or part	their environment, and
     therefore these variables may not be seen by all programs.	 The form of
     the variables is

	  TZ =value

     Lines that	are too	long are ignored; in practice this is not a problem.

     For the syntax of timezone	value specifications, see environ (5).
