TIMEZONE(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		      TIMEZONE(3)

NAME
     timezone -- return the timezone abbreviation

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     char *
     timezone(int zone, int dst);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is available for compatibility only and will disappear in a future software
     release; it is impossible to reliably map timezone's arguments to a time zone abbreviation.
     See ctime(3); see tzset(3) for the new definition of this interface.

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

SEE ALSO
     ctime(3), tzset(3)

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