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(5).

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.
