Unless I'm missing some of the data files, the only rule TYPE ever used is
The man page states:
TYPE Gives the type of year in which the rule applies.
If TYPE is - then the rule applies in all years
between FROM and TO inclusive. If TYPE is something
else, then zic executes the command
yearistype year type
to check the type of a year: an exit status of zero
is taken to mean that the year is of the given type;
an exit status of one is taken to mean that the year
is not of the given type.
What other types except for "-" are allowed?
