Thanks, those ones should do the trick.

Ah, I've just re-tested and the ones I had were correct - but I was
doing it as a relative path, in which case it must always look in
/usr/share/zoneinfo (and probably wasn't finding them at all).

Specifying the absolute path to the generated files (to zdump) shows
that they're correct after all :)

Thanks guys,

Linux supports the notion of a command line or a shell for the same
reason that only children read books with only pictures in them.
Language, be it English or something else, is the only tool flexible
enough to accomplish a sufficiently broad range of tasks.
