Find when DST comes into effect for a specific time zone

Daz
Hello everyone.

I'm making a JavaScript clock which works in real time, and supports
every time zone. I am struggling to find a way to see when the clocks
are set back or forwards in a specific time zone. Is there any way I
can find this out with PHP without having to use some kind of
intensive loop, which will probably lag out my server?

Thanks in advance.

Daz.

<?php
header("Content-type: text/plain");

$timezone = new DateTimeZone("BST");
var_export($timezone->getTransitions());
?>
