Get world time from your linux terminal

You don’t need to setup world clock in your computer anymore. If you are a Linux user then your terminal will server the same purpose. Now from your terminal you can get world time, yes for all the countries. We use Google or other search engines to view time of any country online.

The process to get world time from your terminal:

  1. Open your terminal and type ‘tzselect’ (without quote).
  2. It will show a list of continent and ocean with numbers, just type proper number.
  3. Now the list of countries will appear under the selected continent, type the number related to the country.
  4. Now it will display the timezone of that country. If the country has multiple timezone then you have to enter the timezone number.

Here is the screen shot of my terminal when I searched it from my terminal.
