Re: [Bug-apl] ⎕TZ should not be saved

Sorry.  I now remember this is a topic we covered before and a change was made so the )LOAD ignored ⎕TZ.  That works.

The thing that brought the problem up is because a garbage/unused ⎕TZ, although not loaded, is saved.  This creates problems with source code control systems because ⎕TZ may keep changing artificially when two developers are working on the same code but in different time zones.

Bottom line - ⎕TZ should not be saved.

⎕TZ should not be saved with SAVE or DUMP.  I should be able to count on ⎕TZ containing the locally applicable time zone - not the one the developer had!  If, for some reason the developer wants to change ⎕TZ, it should be done explicitly in a function.  A global value should never be saved.
