|TIMEZONE(5)||File Formats and Configurations||TIMEZONE(5)|
Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or TAB characters. A `#' indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file. The timezone is a pathname relative to the directory /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo.
This file is not actually referenced by any system software; it is merely used as a source file to construct the NIS timezone.byname map, which was used by the installer in older releases of Solaris.
The timezone file does not set the timezone environment variable TZ. See TIMEZONE(5) for information to set the TZ environment variable.
Here is a typical line from the /etc/timezone file:
US/Eastern East.Example.COM #Host on East Coast
