Re: cygcheck's understanding of TZ

Are you saying that /usr/share/zoneinfo isn't the standard location

There are two standards in play. The UNIX standard recognizes CET-1CEST.
The zoneinfo standard recognizes Europe/Monaco. All UNIX systems
implement the UNIX standard; many implement zoneinfo also. The GNU CRTL
implements both. The Windows CRTL implements the UNIX standard (actually
it implements a subset) but does not implement zoneinfo.
If it is the case that that directory is not known to cygcheck then it
seems to me that it ought to be.
You could link cygcheck to the GNU CRTL instead of the Windows CRTL, but
that defeats cygcheck's purpose.
