tztab for Egypt

After runnning set_parms timezone,
Select continent (Africa).
select timezone (Egypt).
Now:
TZ = CAT-2
The problem is that there is no entry for CAT-2 in tztab.
How can I add to tztab and How to modify later if needed?

Re: tztab for Egypt

Notice that when we choose Egypt, the TZ is CAT-2 not EET.
How to Change to EET?
or How to add CAT-2 in tztab?
Also How to modify in tztab?

Re: tztab for Egypt

CAT-2 is a timezone with no customization for DST, so that there's no need to have a specific entry in tztab file.

CAT-2 means GMT-2 with no additional adjusting due to DST.

You can always create your own entry in tztab defining the time boundaries as per some previous threads. Future patches could override that setting, or simply define a different TZ code for the same purpose.

Right. It would only be needed for documentation purposes.

>Robert-Jan's link above mentions something about DST? This would require tztab changes.
