You could get a live CD <>, say
Knoppix <>, boot that, and run
its zic and zdump implementations on the files in question.  Or you
can use its C compiler to compile tzcode, and then use the resulting

Knoppix runs on just about any PC hardware, doesn't affect what's on
your hard disk, and it's free.

Other popular Live CD distributions include Ubuntu (they will ship you
a live CD for free) <>, SLAX
<>, and PCLinuxOS
<>.  There are also live CD distributions for
FreeBSD (e.g., <>), Solaris
(<>), etc.  Any of these should do for your
purpose.  But probably the GNU/Linux live CDs will be the least
porting hassle.

If this all seems too daunting for you, I suggest that you give Mike
Coleman a call.  He works at the Stowers Institute, which is near, and can perhaps give you help with a live CD and/or other
consulting help.  See <>.

Good luck!
