<title>Description</title>
<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
sync.</para>
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
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>tzfile</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>
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
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>environ</refentrytitle><manvolnum>7</manvolnum></citerefentry>.</para>

<title>History</title>
<para>The simple configuration file format of
<filename>/etc/timezone</filename> originates from
Debian GNU/Linux.</para>
