DATE(1)                                                   DATE(1)

     NAME
          date - print and set the date

     SYNOPSIS
          date [ yymmddhhmm [ .ss ] ]

     DESCRIPTION
          If no argument is given, the current date and time are
          printed.  If an argument is given, the current date is set.
          yy is the last two digits of the year; the first mm is the
          month number; dd is the day number in the month; hh is the
          hour number (24 hour system); the second mm is the minute
          number; .ss is optional and is the seconds.  For example:

               date 10080045

          sets the date to Oct 8, 12:45 AM.  The year, month and day
          may be omitted, the current values being the defaults.  The
          system operates in GMT.  Date takes care of the conversion
          to and from local standard and daylight time.

          tically incorrect.
