NAME
       alarm - set the alarm power time and or date of a Toshiba laptop

SYNOPSIS
       alarm [ -dlhv ]

DESCRIPTION
       alarm allows you to set the alarm power on time and/or date of any
       Toshiba laptop or notebook that supports the alarm power on feature.
       Older models may only support an alarm power on time.

       alarm allows fairly complex time specifications, extending the POSIX.2
       standard.  It accepts times of the form HH:MM to set the alarm at a
       specific time of day.  (If that time is already past, the next day is
       assumed.)  You may also specify midnight, noon, or teatime (4pm) and
       you can have a time-of-day suffixed with AM or PM for the morning or
       the evening.  You can also say what day the alarm should be set, by
       giving a date in the form month-name day with an optional year, or
       giving a date of the form MMDDYY or MM/DD/YY or DD.MM.YY.  The
       specification of a date must follow the specification of the time of
       day.  You can also give times like now + count time-units, where the
       time-units can be minutes, hours, days, or weeks and you can tell alarm
       to set the alarm today by suffixing the time with today and to set the
       alarm tomorrow by suffixing the time with tomorrow.

       For example, to set the alarm at 4pm three days from now, you would do
       alarm 4pm + 3 days, to set the alarm at 10:00am on July 31, you would
       do alarm 10am Jul 31 and to set the alarm at 1am tomorrow, you would do
       alarm 1am tomorrow.

OPTIONS
       -d, --disable
              Disable the alarm power on feature of the laptop.

       -l, --localtime
              Use if the hardware CMOS clock on the laptop is set to localtime
              rather than GMT/UTC.

       -h     Print a short synopsis of the command line arguments.

       -v, --version
              Print the version number and then exit.

BUGS
       You cannot set the power on alarm date to everyday.
