duke@2 29 # to a time zone that was right for their area. These days, the
duke@2 30 # tz files cover almost all the inhabited world, and the only practical
duke@2 31 # need now for the entries that are not on UTC are for ships at sea
duke@2 32 # that cannot use POSIX TZ settings.

rpatil@41354 36 # instead of TZ='Etc/GMT+4' one can use the POSIX setting TZ='<-04>+4'.

rpatil@41354 38 # Do not use a POSIX TZ setting like TZ='GMT+4', which is four hours
