tzselect - view timezones
This manual page explains how you can use the tzselect utility to view the installed time‐
zone. It comes handy when you want to know what time it is in other countries, or if you
just wonder what timezones exist.
tzselect is called without any parameters from the shell. It shows a list of about one
dozen geographic areas one can roughly recognize as continents. After choosing a geo‐
graphic area by number, a list of countries and cities in this area will be shown.
You can press the Enter key to reprint the list. To choose a timezone, just press the num‐
ber left to it. If your input is invalid, the list will be reprinted.
You may press Ctrl-C to interrupt the script at any time.
Note that tzselect will not actually change the timezone for you. Use 'dpkg-reconfigure
tzdata' to achieve this.
