# need now for the entries that are not on UTC are for ships at sea
# that cannot use POSIX TZ settings.

# as functions like gmtime load the "GMT" file to handle leap seconds properly.
# We want this to work even on installations that omit the other older names.

# We use POSIX-style signs in the Zone names and the output abbreviations,
# even though this is the opposite of what many people expect.
# POSIX has positive signs west of Greenwich, but many people expect
# positive signs east of Greenwich. For example, TZ='Etc/GMT+4' uses
# the abbreviation "GMT+4" and corresponds to 4 hours behind UTC
# (i.e. west of Greenwich) even though many people would expect it to
# mean 4 hours ahead of UTC (i.e. east of Greenwich).
# In the draft 5 of POSIX 1003.1-200x, the angle bracket notation
# (which is not yet supported by the tz code) allows for
# TZ='<GMT-4>+4'; if you want time zone abbreviations conforming to
# ISO 8601 you can use TZ='<-0400>+4'. Thus the commonly-expected
# offset is kept within the angle bracket (and is used for display)
# while the POSIX sign is kept outside the angle bracket (and is used
# for calculation).
# Do not use a TZ setting like TZ='GMT+4', which is four hours behind
# GMT but uses the completely misleading abbreviation "GMT".
# Earlier incarnations of this package were not POSIX-compliant,
# and had lines such as
# Zone GMT-12 -12 - GMT-1200
# We did not want things to change quietly if someone accustomed to the old
# way does a
# zic -l GMT-12
# so we moved the names into the Etc subdirectory.
