Example: Get List of Known Time Zone Locations Using OlsonNames() Function

This example illustrates how to create a list of known time zones in R.

For this, we can apply the OlsonNames function as shown below:

OlsonNames()                     # Apply OlsonNames function
#   [1] "Africa/Abidjan"                   "Africa/Accra"                    
#   [3] "Africa/Addis_Ababa"               "Africa/Algiers"                  
#   [5] "Africa/Asmara"                    "Africa/Asmera"                   
#   [7] "Africa/Bamako"                    "Africa/Bangui"                   
#   [9] "Africa/Banjul"                    "Africa/Bissau"                   
#  [11] "Africa/Blantyre"                  "Africa/Brazzaville"              
#  ...

The previous list contains known time zones that can be used for date and time objects in R:
