Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157494
tzselect (glibc-common) contains inappropriate escape sequence in awk script
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:01:05 EST
Description of problem:
When using the 'none' (option 11 selection) from the first menu in tzselect, and
entering a timezone value, you receive the following:
Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set correctly.
Please select a continent or ocean.
4) Arctic Ocean
6) Atlantic Ocean
9) Indian Ocean
10) Pacific Ocean
11) none - I want to specify the time zone using the Posix TZ format.
Please enter the desired value of the TZ environment variable.
For example, GST-10 is a zone named GST that is 10 hours ahead (east) of UTC.
awk: cmd. line:5: warning: escape sequence `\.' treated as plain `.'
The following information has been given:
Therefore TZ='GST-5' will be used.
Local time is now: Tue May 10 20:31:06 GST 2005.
Universal Time is now: Tue May 10 15:31:06 UTC 2005.
Is the above information OK?
