NAME

timezone - Sets timezone information.  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/timezone [-d]  

DESCRIPTION

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 flag, the timezone command outputs only the setting of the TZC environment variable.

You must execute this command if you are using the SVID-2 habitat. Once it is run, it does not need to be run again unless the system is re-installed.  

RESTRICTIONS

You must have superuser privileges to use the timezone command.

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