NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       timezone - Sets timezone information

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/timezone [-d]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The timezone command is an interactive program for setting
       and changing the timezone for users running in the SVID  2
       habitat.  The program prompts you for specific information
       regarding the timezone for your area and outputs the  settings
  of both the TZ and TZC environment variables to the
       /etc/svid2_tZ file. If you  specify  the  -d  option,  the
       timezone command outputs only the setting of the TZC environment

       You must execute this command if you are using the SVID  2
       habitat.   After it runs, it does not need to be run again
       unless the operating system is reinstalled.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You must have superuser privileges  to  use  the  timezone

       Refer  to  the  System  V  Compatibility  User's Guide for
       information on the System V Habitat.
