tktz icontktz 0.3

tktz will help you to guess the current time in another country.
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''.
