I'm forwarding this message from Honey Bajaj, who is not on the time zone mailing list. Those of you who are on the list, please direct replies appropriately.

(On some systems, setting TZ to "GMT-48" may do what HB wants.)

Subject: Timezone option


I have a testing requirement which needs to alter the system date to a couple of days ahead of current date. I am wondering if its possible to have a custom timezone which can provide this date change ability to drift the current time to couple of days ahead by setting the TZ environment variable.
