Description

\Sexpr[results=rd,stage=build]{tools:::Rd_package_description("gettz")}

Details

R has a function Sys.timezone which tries hard to retrieve the same information. However, we have found instances where it failed to provide an answer—whereas the simple code in this package does.

This package provides a single function gettz which looks at /etc/timezone (on Debian/Ubuntu), /etc/sysconfig/clock (on RedHat/CentOS/Fedora) or /etc/TIMEZONE (on Solaris). In case no information can be provided, NULL is returned.

Windows support is bare-bones: the package builds, but does not do anything. One could probably deploy custom code to query the registry but given that R already does, there is imminent need.
