TIMEZONE(3)                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.

NetBSD 6.1.5                    April 19, 1994                    NetBSD 6.1.5
