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"

Note that this value for the vxWorks TIMEZONE variable is wrong - the last two digits in each triplet tell vxWorks the _hour_ of the change, not the year, thus they should almost always be 02 since most states change to/from summer time at 2am.


The format is described in the configure/CONFIG_SITE_ENV file of most recent R3.14 releases.
