R couldnt recognize US Pasific timezome

Bogaso
Hi,

I wanted to convert Epoch time to readable time with US Pacific Time Zone
using 'anytime' package, as below:

> library(anytime)
> anytime(1417411980, tz = 'PST')
[1] "2014-12-01 05:33:00 GMT"
Warning message:
In as.POSIXlt.POSIXct(x, tz) : unknown timezone 'PST'


However it appears that R couldn't recognize the PST as the short form of
Pacific time zone.

Any help to correctly change Epoch time to corresponding pacific time would
be helpful.

Thanks,

Several of the "conventional" three letter timezone abbreviations actually
get re-used in different parts of the world, and not all operating system
support for timezones include the same shortcuts. The solution is to use
the correct timezone string rather than your familiar shortcut... you can
look through the vector returned by the OlsonNames() function in general,
but in your case just use "Etc/GMT+8" for standard time year-round. If you
wanted daylight savings time support, you would use "America/Los_Angeles".

Or (perhaps preferably) "US/Pacific" for daylight savings time support.
