Problem


RWTime/RWDate displays an incorrect time and date.


Cause


If you are linking your application with libbsd.a, the global TZ variables are corrupted by this library, which causes RWTime to create a bad date and time. If you then create a RWDate from this bad RWTime, you will get a bad date as well.

 




Action


For pre-SPM installs:
  • Uncomment /* #define RW_NO_GLOBAL_TZ 1 */ in .../rw/compiler.h. This line should appear near line 750 or 820, depending on what version of Tools.h++ you have.
  • Rebuild the library. (Be sure to do a 'make clean' before you re-make the library)
For SPM installs:
  • Uncomment /* #define RW_NO_GLOBAL_TZ 1 */ in parts/tls0707u/source/obj/AIX/CSET/rw/compiler.h. This line should appear around line 965 depending on your particular install.
  • Rebuild the library with the Software Parts Manager.

NOTE: Beginning with the June, 1998 release of Software Parts Manager, the file compiler.h will be located in the workspace, in .../workspaces/AIX/CSET//rw/compiler.h.
