NAME

       pmNewZone - establish a reporting timezone

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmNewZone(const char *tz);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       The current reporting timezone affects the timezone used by pmCtime(3) and pmLocaltime(3).

       The  argument tz defines a timezone string, in the format described for the TZ environment
       variable, see environ(5).

       pmNewZone sets the current reporting timezone, and returns a value that may be used  in  a
       subsequent call to pmUseZone(3) to restore this reporting timezone.

       pmWhichZone(3), pcp.conf(4), pcp.env(4) and environ(5).

DIAGNOSTICS

       A return value less than zero indicates a fatal error from  a  system  call,  most  likely
       malloc(3C).
