NAME

SetDST 1.9 (16.3.2001)

Public Upload #7


INTRODUCTION

In most countries of the world local time changes two times a year: from
local standard time, also known as Wintertime, to local daylight saving
time (DST), also known as Summertime, and back.

SetDST helps you to keep up with the DST switches and will perform any
necessary action automatically.
It may be run in the background if you wish, so if you never switch your
computer off it will make sure that you always have the right system
time--hopefully, though ;-)

In addition to that SetDST creates and manages up to 4 environment
variables, TZONE, TZ, TIMEZONE and YAM_TZ, which enables other
applications to make use of the time zone names and GMT offsets stored
within.

It is able to patch the default locale by user request.


EINFÜHRUNG

In den meisten Ländern dieser Erde wird zweimal im Jahr die lokale
Ortszeit umgestellt: von Winterzeit auf Sommerzeit und umgekehrt.

SetDST hilft dabei, mit den Zeitumstellungen Schritt zu halten und führt
alle notwendigen Änderungen automatisch durch.
Es kann auf Wunsch im Hintergrund laufen, so daß auch dann immer die
korrekte Zeit eingestellt ist, wenn der Computer dauernd in Betrieb ist -
hoffentlich jedenfalls ;-)

Darüber hinaus erzeugt und verwaltet SetDST bis zu 4 Umgebungsvariablen,
was es anderen Anwendungsprogrammen ermöglicht, die darin gespeicherten
Zeitzonen-Namen und Zeitdifferenzen von GMT zu nutzen.
Auf Wunsch kann die Default-Locale gepatcht werden.


CHANGES SINCE V1.8

1.9 (16.3.2001)
---------------
° All Requesters now use the ReAction GUI engine when available.
° DST.dat now contains entries for new OS3.5/OS3.9-Countries.
° A timezone record will now also be found when the identifier matches but the
  GMT offset doesn't.
  When there are more than on records with the same identifier the first
  matching one will be used in this case.
° A timezone record may now contain more than one identifier.
° TZONE is no longer padded with a leading zero when the GMT offset hour has
  one digit only.
° The logfile format has been changed slightly.
