tktz will help you to guess the current time in another country.
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 zone.tab file (usually placed nearly /usr/share/timezone/). If in your case this path is invalid, insert into your ``.Xdefaults'' line:
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''.

What's New in This Release:
- This version was totally rewritten to reflect changes in Tcl/Tk 8.5.x.
- This removed some internal quirks.
- A timezone file now comes with tktz, so there is no need to specify its location anymore.
- The program will no longer start without a legal value in the TZ environment variable.
