With the change back to Standard Time, is there a PV-Wave function which returns if the PC is running on DST or ST?

No, the date/time utils in PV-WAVE are based on the ones in the underlying C implementation of the language. There is no way for C to tell Standard Time vs DST, operating systems implement their own logic to deal with this.

Thanks for the info. I had implemented a PV-Wave routine utilizing the VMS SYS$TIMEZONE_RULE symbol. Is there something corresponding on the Windows side?
