Steve,

/usr/sbin/zdump -v /etc/localtime

... on my Linux box seems to produce some data that a hacker could
easily use to produce the string you want.

Cheers,

Subject: VxWorks TIMEZONE hack, anyone?


Does anyone have a convenient way to construct the value for the 
VxWorks TIMEZONE environment variable?  It looks something like this

"TIMEZONE=PDT::480:040305:103005"

Sun's have this information embedded into their timezone files in 
/usr/share/lib/zoneinfo.  However, it's in binary form...does anyone 
have a whizbang utility for extracting this and formatting a string?

A Linux variant would also be useful...
