Extracted from the "europe" file : # Shanks gives 0:09 for Paris Mean Time; go with Whitman's more precise 0:09:05. Should be 0:09:21 instead. By the way, is there somewhere a lastest version of those files ? Another question : my zdump seems to be broken (mentions 1970 too often). Ever heard about this ?
