Compiling A Zone File
Originally written by
- The OS does not read these text files to make time calculations.
- We use the 'zic' compiler to turn them into binary files:
- zic <text-file-name>
- The resulting file will be placed in the system's standard directory
(often /usr/share/timezone/), using the zone name (from the file)
as the name of the resulting binary file (if there's a '/' - puts the
file in a sub-directory).
