provides a list of time zone names that are recognized by
SET TIMEZONE, along with their
associated abbreviations, UTC offsets, and daylight-savings
status. (Technically, PostgreSQL
does not use UTC because leap seconds are not handled.) Unlike
the abbreviations shown in
pg_timezone_abbrevs, many of these names
imply a set of daylight-savings transition date rules. Therefore,
the associated information changes across local DST boundaries.
The displayed information is computed based on the current value
||Time zone name|
||Time zone abbreviation|
||Offset from UTC (positive means east of Greenwich)|
||True if currently observing daylight savings|
