utility prints the current time in
named on the command line.
The following options are available:
- Output version information and exit.
- For each zonename on the command line,
print the time at the lowest possible time value, the time one day after
the lowest possible time value, the times both one second before and
exactly at each detected time discontinuity, the time at one day less than
the highest possible time value, and the time at the highest possible time
value, Each line ends with isdst=1 if the
given time is Daylight Saving Time or isdst=0
- Cut off verbose output near the start of the given year(s). By default,
the program cuts off verbose output near the starts of the years -500 and
option may not be used on systems with
floating-point time_t values that are neither float nor double.
Time discontinuities are found by sampling the results returned by localtime at
twelve-hour intervals. This works in all real-world cases; one can construct
artificial time zones for which this fails.
