DATE(1)                     General Commands Manual                    DATE(1)



NAME
       date - date and time

SYNOPSIS
       date [ option ] [ seconds ]

DESCRIPTION
       Print the date, in the format

            Tue Aug 16 17:03:52 CDT 1977

       The options are

       -u     Report Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) rather than local time.

       -n     Report the date as the number of seconds since the epoch,
              00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970.

       The conversion from Greenwich Mean Time to local time depends on the
       $timezone environment variable; see ctime(3).

       If the optional argument seconds is present, it is used as the time to
       convert rather than the real time.
