timezone-olson version 0.1.0 This package provides a parser and renderer for binary Olson timezone files whose format is specified by the tzfile(5) man page on Unix-like systems. For more information about this format, see <http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm>. Functions are provided for converting the parsed data into 'TimeZoneSeries' objects from the timezone-series package. On many platforms, binary Olson timezone files suitable for use with this package are available in the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo and its subdirectories on your computer. This version of timezone-olson is highly experimental. Expect there to be bugs, and do not rely on any stability of the exposed interfaces. Copyright (c) 2010 Yitzchak Gale. All rights reserved.

With the -i flag, interprets the timezone data as a TimeZoneSeries object before rendering.
