But it *is* POSIX. From IEEE Std 1003.1-2001:

I don't, but I have Lewine's _POSIX Programmer's Guide_, which is based
on POSIX.1 (IEEE 1003.1-1988), and he does list %z but I'm pretty sure
it's a typo, since he doesn't list %Z at all. The text next to it just
says it's the time zone, with no format specified, and there are no uses
of %z (or %Z) in the examples.
