environment variable scheme), and the result is returned into a

the result contains the components broken out in the elements of the

The default current reporting timezone is as defined by the TZ
environment variable, so pmLocaltime and localtime(3) will initially
produce a similar encoding of the date and time.
Use pmNewZone(3), pmNewContextZone(3) or pmUseZone(3) to establish a
