gworldclock(1) Displays time and date in specified time zones.


gworldclock [ -f FILE ]


gworldclock displays the time and date of specified time zones using a GTK+ interface. It also allows the zones to be "rendezvoused" or "synchronised" to a time other than the current time.

The time zones may be chosen from the list given in the GUI user interface. The zones available are generated from the data in /usr/share/zoneinfo/ The chosen set of zones is stored in ${HOME}/.tzlist by default, but an alternate file may be specified at the command line via -f. Alternatively this file may be created by hand in TZ format. The zone list is kept in a format consistent with the shell script tzwatch, currently found in twclock. The format consists of one TZ string per line, optionally followed by a human-friendly string enclosed in inverted commas ("), providing a name for the zone.


Read zone list from FILE instead of ${HOME}/.tzlist.
