Kylix does not update time when /etc/localtime changes
2006-02-24 11:40:55 PM
in our Kylix(Pascal) application we are calling function now() to
display time on the screen. In our Linux configuration BIOS keeps UTC
time and then using a proper symlink /etc/localtime we change timezone.
Once this symlink is changed all native Linux applications show proper
local time, however our Kylix application still displays whatever was
known from before.
Does Kylix keeps its own version of /etc/localtime or does it count
time itself? In any case how can we obtain on the fly (without
restarting application) a new, proper time information?
Thank you very much in advance,
