Description: ------------ Date_TimeZone uses UTC instead of EST when the timezone name is "EDT". The fix is to create an entry for EDT alongside EST and EST5EDT in the code. By the way, have you considered making each timezone entry a separate file, such as a short .ini file, and just have Date_TimeZone load that one file whenever a timezone is loaded? For instance, if "America/Thunder_Bay" is the timezone, it would load data from: "Date/timezone-data/America/Thunder_Bay.ini" and so forth. That way the code wouldn't have to parse and carry around the full array of timezones. Reproduce code: --------------- require_once 'Date/TimeZone.php'; $dtz = Date_TimeZone::getDefault(); $php_tz = date('T'); // on my machine this returns 'EDT' $pear_tz = $dtz->getShortName(); print("$php_tz =? $pear_tz\n"); Expected result: ---------------- EDT =? EST Actual result: -------------- EDT =? UTC
