Subject: Setting Daylight savings time for New Zealand
organization: Victoria Uni. of Wellington, NZ.
I'm having problems getting my NeXTstation to recognize daylight
savings here in New Zealand.
I'm been told the process should be automatic and there's nothing I
need to change. But NEXTSTEP must think daylight saving for us here in
New Zealand starts later than it in fact does.
Anyone know what files or settings I need to change?

See the documentation for the `zic' command. I'm not sure exactly (I
don't have access to Nextstep any more), but it must be a file named
/usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/australasia, or something like that. Replace
the New Zealand section with the following data (this is the short
version; for the full version please see
ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tzdata95h.tar.gz) and use the command
`zic -l NZ australasia'.
