For the archive: that's not really the best answer. The timezone file contains much more than just the date that time changes this year. It also contains a history of when it changed in past years, so that file time displays and time interval calculations will be correct. The correct answer _should_ be to install the timezone file for your part of Indiana and let it do the right thing. If it is incorrect, either you need an updated TZ file, or you need to contact the maintainers of the file to get them to correct it. - Bob _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
