- Subject: "date" reports wrong timezone
I have a recent install of CYGWIN running under Windows XP on a powermac
The time on Windows is set correctly, but date returns the wrong date
(and the wrong times on files).
It reports times in GMT.
I want to change the timezone to PDT (pacific daylight time). By
experimentation, I found
that I can reset the timezone environment variable to EST by setting
TZ=EST, but the
similar TZ=PST or TZ=PDT has no effect.
