Type Property

abbreviationDictionary

Returns a dictionary holding the mappings of time zone abbreviations to time zone names.

Declaration

class var abbreviationDictionary: [String : String] { get set }

Return Value

A dictionary holding the mappings of time zone abbreviations to time zone names.

Discussion

Note that more than one time zone may have the same abbreviation—for example, US/Pacific and Canada/Pacific both use the abbreviation “PST.” In these cases, abbreviationDictionary chooses a single name to map the abbreviation to.
