Re: Solaris 2.7 Daylight saving time fix.




old school "?STx?DT" TZ format (to US/Central for example) and the other
is to ditch the solaris zdump for the nih one. I'm still hoping for a
response but it was indicated that Sun holds that the ?STx?DT format
precludes using any zoneinfo files - not sure where it gets the info then
(one of libc or libdl? time()?) but ....

The POSIX standard *requires* that the ?STx?DT format precludes
the use of zone files.

Any OS which uses the zoneinfo files is not compliant when the $TZ
variable can be parsed under the POSIX rules.
