    Default Linux, detect DST (daylight saving time)

    How can I detect if Dst is active on a linux machine?

    In windows, using c++builder, I can just query a global var _daylight.

    Thanks.

    Nothing to do with Qt.

    You want to retrieve a struct tm using one of the time-related function in glibc:

    Struct tm docs: http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/glibc/libc_435.html
    An example: http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/glibc/libc_443.html
