timezone(4)			 File Formats			   timezone(4)

NAME
       timezone	- default timezone data	base

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/timezone

DESCRIPTION
       The  timezone  file contains information	regarding the default timezone
       for each	host in	a domain. Alternatively, a single default line for the
       entire domain  may be specified.	Each entry has the format:

       Timezone-name	official-host-or-domain-name

       Items  are  separated  by any number of blanks and/or TAB characters. A
       `#' indicates the beginning of a	comment; characters up to the  end  of
       the  line  are  not  interpreted	by routines which search the file. The
       timezone	is a pathname relative to the  directory  /usr/share/lib/zone-
       info.

       This  file  is  not  actually  referenced by any	system software; it is
       merely used as a	source file to construct the NIS timezone.byname  map.
       This  map  is  read  by sysidtool(1M) to	initialize the timezone	of the
       client system at	installation time. For more information, see  the  So-
       laris 10	Installation Guide: Basic Installations.

       The  timezone  file  does not set the timezone environment variable TZ.
       See TIMEZONE(4) for information to set the TZ environment variable.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Typical timezone line
