Gnulib also supports MSVC, which interprets the TZ environment variable in its

All of them would use UTC (the first one with the abbreviation "UTC", the others with "GMT"). Other variants would work as well, e.g., "UTC-00:00:00". I usually use "UTC0" as it's simplest and most technically correct (GMT stopped being standardized many years ago).
