tktz will help you to guess the current time in another country. tktz project reads special timezone description files and shows you a list of the countries and zone name for each entry

Written & tested on FreeBSD 6.0; must go without restrictions on every UNIX-like OS (except HP-UX, I think). Windows? For than moment answer is negative, let me know if I'm wrong.


tktz requires Tcl/Tk at least version 8.4.

1. Copy all distribution files in directory you like, for example:

% cp -R tktz-x.y /usr/local/lib/tktz

2. Make symlink to executable file:

% ln -s /usr/local/lib/tktz/tktz /usr/local/bin/tktz

3. Make sure you have file (usually placed nearly /usr/share/timezone/). If in your case this path is invalid, insert into your ``.Xdefaults'' line:

*Tktz.l_file_val.text: /path/to/another/timezone/file

or start application with -xrm command line option:

% tktz -xrm '*Tktz.l_file_val.text: /path/to/another/timezone/file'

Any such command line argument will override its equivalent from in ''.Xdefaults''.
