List of Time Zones in R

x <- file.path(R.home("share"), "zoneinfo", "") %>% 
  read.delim(row.names = NULL, header = FALSE,
             col.names = c("country", "coords", "name", "comments"),
    = TRUE, fill = TRUE, comment.char = "#")

y <- as.character(OlsonNames())

I am wondering why there is a difference between length of time zones (596) and number of rows of dataset (418 )?

See help(timezones). OlsonNames() (BTW: already returns a character vector) works according to its selected time database, and its default is system-specific.
