PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
daylight, timezone, tzname, tzset - set timezone conversion information SYNOPSIS
#include <time.h> extern int daylight; extern long timezone; extern char *tzname[2]; void tzset(void); DESCRIPTION
The tzset() function shall use the value of the environment variable TZ to set time conversion information used by ctime(), localtime(), mktime(), and strftime() . If TZ is absent from the environment, implementation-defined default timezone information shall be used. The tzset() function shall set the external variable tzname as follows: tzname[0] = "std"; tzname[1] = "dst"; where std and dst are as described in the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 8, Environment Variables. The tzset() function also shall set the external variable daylight to 0 if Daylight Savings Time conversions should never be applied for the timezone in use; otherwise, non-zero. The external variable timezone shall be set to the difference, in seconds, between Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and local standard time. RETURN VALUE
The tzset() function shall not return a value. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
Example TZ variables and their timezone differences are given in the table below: TZ timezone EST5EDT 5*60*60 GMT0 0*60*60 JST-9 -9*60*60 MET-1MEST -1*60*60 MST7MDT 7*60*60 PST8PDT 8*60*60 APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO
