I haven't read POSIX yet, but mktime() fails on the boundary condition blackholes when timezones change. I just filed a patch for the PostgreSQL port so that it deals with this problem.
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=36954 I believe that Linux and SunOS handle this automatically and am wondering if FreeBSD should too (this was the 1st time the PostgreSQL guys had heard of this in over 6 years). I'm not a daylight savings expert, but am wondering what other people think. Seems like a good idea(TM) to me. For example (PST/PDT assumed): 2002-4-7 2:0:0.0 should be: 2002-4-7 3:0:0.0 Anyone object or have any thoughts? -sc -- Sean Chittenden
