There is a need to have the program determine the time zone where it is running. How is this done with ACUCOBOL-GT?
While AcuCOBOL-GT has no native ability to determine the timezone it is accomplished fairly easily with a call to the kernel32.dll GetTimeZoneInformation method. The attached program demonstrates this, and how to parse the result into usable pieces.
Note that if the program is running on a server via AcuConnect Thin Client it is possible to determine the Client PC's timezone with the same method. It is a simple matter of using the @[display] notation to tell the runtime to call the dll on the client PC. Complete information about that is found in the AcuConnect user's manual, Section 126.96.36.199 "Calling client-side DLLs."
