dm_zdump - timezone dumper
This performs the same operation as the unix 'zdump' command, but using
the Date::Manip module.
dm_zdump [-v] [-c YEAR] [ZONE ZONE ...]
This displays the current time in each ZONE
named on the command line
unless the -v option is given.
- -h, --help
Print online help.
- -v, --verbose
This displays all critical dates (i.e. the times when a time change
occurs due to the timezone description) for each of the timezones
listed (or the local timezone if none are listed).
Each critical date is printed as two lines of output: the last second
before the change occurs, and the first second of the new time.
By default, all critical dates from Jan 1, 0001 until the year 20 years
in the future are printed, but this can be changed with the -c option.
- -c, --cutoff YEAR
This specifies the cutoff year. All critical dates up to the start of
YEAR are given. The GMT time Jan 01, YEAR at 00:00:00 is the cutoff
