NAME

pmNewZone - establish a reporting timezone

C SYNOPSIS

#include < pcp/pmapi.h >

int pmNewZone(const char * tz );

cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

The current reporting timezone affects the timezone used by pmCtime (3) and pmLocaltime (3).

The argument tz defines a timezone string, in the format described for the TZ environment variable, see environ (7).

pmNewZone sets the current reporting timezone, and returns a value that may be used in a subsequent call to pmUseZone (3) to restore this reporting timezone.
