<para>The <filename>/etc/timezone</filename> file
<para>The <filename>/etc/localtime</filename> file
configures the system-wide time zone of the local
system that is used by applications for presentation
to the user. It should contain a single
newline-terminated line consisting of a time zone
identifier such as
<literal>Europe/Berlin</literal>. The file
<filename>/etc/localtime</filename> corresponds with
<filename>/etc/timezone</filename> and contains the
binary time zone data for the time zone. These files
should always be changed simultaneously and kept in
to the user. It should be an absolute symbolic link
with a destination of <filename>/usr/share/zoneinfo/</filename>,
fallowed by a time zone identifier such as
<literal>Europe/Berlin</literal> or <literal>Etc/UTC</literal>.
The resulting link should point to the corresponding binary
time zone data for the configured time zone.</para>
<para>As the time zone identifier is extracted from the name of
the target of <filename>/etc/localtime</filename> this file may
not be a normal file or hardlink.</para>
<para>The time zone may be overridden for individual
programs by using the TZ environment variable. See
<para>The simple configuration file format of
<filename>/etc/timezone</filename> originates from
Debian GNU/Linux.</para>
