Question Time conversion in Unix


Is there any way to get current time for a particular country using any unix command ?

I mean, If i want to find out current time in US or UK or anything ....

Any command or library routine available for that?
How it can be done in C on Unix?

Can anybody help me?

Look at the the gettimeofday() system call. It can deal with timezones. Alternately at the command line you could just do something like:

TZ=GMT0 date

Which would return the Dreenwhich Mean Time (aka UTC). You could substitute any timezone specification:
