"microprocessor" isn't a well defined term.
If you have an OS, use the time conversion package. They all use the same
collection of zone info files.
If you don't have an OS, use a system with an OS to pre-compute the
switch-dates for the next N years and store them in a table. You will have to
update that table whenever Congress screws with things.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
