'date' command in Cygwin
Tue Nov 2 09:34:00 GMT 1999
I am running Cygwin on my Windows 95 PC haveing
installed the binary distribution. Last week I ran the 'date' command and found
that the time reported was 1 hour earlier than it should - ie it was reporting
GMT rather than taking account of Daylight Saving (BST). As our clocks have now
gone back the time is correct but only because it defaults to GMT. Next Spring
it will all go horribly wrong again!
The Cygwin date command gives -> Tue
NovÃÂ 2 17:31:16ÃÂ 1999 whereas the
MKS Toolkit givesÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ -> Tue NovÃÂ 2 17:31:48 GST
How can I get Cygwin 'date' to recognize the
timezone on a Win95 (or NT4) machine?
