24:   Link Etc/GMT Etc/GMT+0   Link Etc/GMT Etc/GMT0    - # We use POSIX-style signedness in the names and output, - # internal-style signedness in the specifications. - # For example, TZ=Etc/GMT+4 corresponds to 4 hours _behind_ UTC; - # it is equivalent to TZ=GMT+4, which is implemented directly as per POSIX. + # 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
