man tzselect (Commandes) - view timezones


tzselect - view timezones




This manual page explains how you can use the tzselect utility to view the installed timezone. It comes handy when you want to know what time it is in other countries, or if you just wonder what timezones exist.

tzselect is called without any parameters from the shell. It shows a list of about one dozen geographic areas one can roughly recognize as continents. After choosing a geographic area by number, a list of countries and cities in this area will be shown.

You can press the Enter key to reprint the list. To choose a timezone, just press the number left to it. If your input is invalid, the list will be reprinted.

You may press Ctrl-C to interrupt the script at any time.

Nothe that tzselect will not actually change the timezone for you. Use the tzconfig(8) utility to achieve this.
