I think most of my platforms will work fine (FreeBSD 4.x, GNU/Linux,
Solaris, MacOS X). I am not sure about the CRAY... Let me see:

address@hidden mdb]$ echo $TZ
MET-1MET,M3.5.0,M10.5.0
address@hidden mdb]$ export TZ=Asia/Calcutta 
address@hidden mdb]$ date
Fri Apr 15 07:01:59     2005
address@hidden mdb]$ export TZ=MET-1MET,M3.5.0,M10.5.0
address@hidden mdb]$ date
Fri Apr 15 09:02:13 MET 2005
address@hidden mdb]$ 

Let me see what the man page for environ has to say about TZ

address@hidden mdb]$ man -s 7 environ
...
    TZ        Time zone information.  The format is xxxnzzz where xxx is
               standard local time zone abbreviation, n is the difference
               in hours from GMT, and zzz is the abbreviation for the
               daylight-saving local time zone, if any; for example,
               EST5EDT.
...

address@hidden mdb]$ TZ=Pacific/Honolulu date
Fri Apr 15 07:07:12     2005
address@hidden mdb]$ 

That said, I doubt if this will be a big problem given that CRAY doesn't
yet support client/server as I have only been able to get :local: to
work on it.
