Subject: date

When I execute the command date with the TZ environment variable set to
est5edt I assume it should give me the system clock time less 4 hours.
It does figure out that it is now EDT but it gives me the system clock
time. If I use the command date -u it still gives me the system clock
time. Is there something else I need to set or is my assumption wrong?
If my assumption is wrong why do I have all those zoneinfo files?

Thanks, Jim Chapman
