I am trying to use tzsetwall() as described in
'man -s3c ctime', but unfortunately for me, the
below pgm does not compile on my system.

$ cat t.c
#include <time.h>



$ cc t.c
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
tzsetwall                           t.o
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to a.out

I can't find tzsetwall!
The following cmds don't turn out a single line of output on
my system:

$ find /usr/include -name '*.h' -print | xargs grep tzsetwall
$ find /usr/lib -name '*.a' -print | xargs nm | grep tzsetwall

Has anybody used tzsetwall on solaris 2.x?
If so, how?  And do you know were it is on your system?

I think tzsetwall was removed from libc but the manual pages weren't
updated to reflect this.  See Sun bug 1179780.

If you really need tzsetwall, you can use the public domain implementation
of the tz package in <ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tz*> and compile
it with STD_INSPIRED defined; this works with Sun's time zone database.

It may be simpler to remove `TZ' from your environment and then call `tzset'.


1. This clone thing...am I stupid, or am I right?


I admire your passion, Chris..

The only issues which have kept myself from looking seriously at Linux
would be:

* It's Unix and the learning curve to start getting productive strikes me
as probably very steep

* It doesn't support plug-and-play.  If your hardware doesn't have Linux
drivers, it don't play..

* Not nearly the amount of developers out there doing stuff for Linux as
there are for Wintel.  Can I get MS Office for Linux?  Can I get
Photoshop for Linux?  Can I get QuarkXpress for Linux? etc.. a big turn
off for me.
