pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/README:3:   "What time is it?" -- Richard Deacon as The King   "Any time you want it to be." -- Frank Baxter as The Scientist    (from the Bell System film "About Time")      The Time Zone Database (often called tz or zoneinfo) contains code and   data that represent the history of local time for many representative   locations around the globe. It is updated periodically to reflect   changes made by political bodies to time zone boundaries, UTC offsets,   and daylight-saving rules.    - Here is a recipe for acquiring, building, installing, and testing the - tz distribution on a GNU/Linux or similar host. -  - To acquire the distribution, run the following shell commands: -  -  mkdir tz -  cd tz -  wget --retr-symlinks 'ftp://ftp.iana.org/tz/tz*-latest.tar.gz' -  gzip -dc tzcode-latest.tar.gz | tar -xf - -  gzip -dc tzdata-latest.tar.gz | tar -xf - -  - Alternatively, the following shell commands acquire the same - distribution, with extra data useful for regression testing: -  -  wget --retr-symlinks 'ftp://ftp.iana.org/tz/tzdb-latest.tar.lz' -  lzip -dc tzdb-latest.tar.lz | tar -xf - -  - Be sure to read the comments in "Makefile" and make any changes needed + See <https://www.iana.org/time-zones/repository/tz-link.html> or the + file tz-link.htm for how to acquire the code and data. Once acquired, + read the comments in the file 'Makefile' and make any changes needed   to make things right for your system, especially if you are using some   platform other than GNU/Linux. Then run the following commands,   substituting your desired installation directory for "$HOME/tzdir":       make TOPDIR=$HOME/tzdir install    $HOME/tzdir/etc/zdump -v America/Los_Angeles      Historical local time information has been included here to:      * provide a compendium of data about the history of civil time
