Re: [Mingw-msys] Reconstruction of MSYS-1.0.11 test results.




Hi,

There's something wrong with the date function.  It looks like the timezone codes are defined incorrectly.

The following command should be the identity function.  This is the result on an XP SP 2

date -d "1970-01-01 1212522780 sec UTC" +"%s"
1212526380

It is the identity function if the timezone is EST.   The actual timezone is EDT.  

date -d "1970-01-01 1212631585 sec EST" +"%s"
1212653185

Even if --utc is specified, the value is not preserved

date --utc -d "1970-01-01 1212631585 sec UTC" +"%s"
1212635185

Date works OK on a linux system running GNU.
