DM_DATE(1)		       User Contributed Perl Documentation		       DM_DATE(1)

NAME
       dm_date - print out the system date and time

SYNOPSIS
       This performs the same operation as the unix 'date' command, but using the Date::Manip
       module.

	  dm_date [OPTION]... [+FORMAT]

DESCRIPTION
       This displays information about the current system time, or some other time. Options are:

       -h, --help
	   Print online help.

       -d STRING, --date=STRING
	   Display time described by STRING. STRING can be any string which can be parsed by
	   Date::Manip.  Please refer to the Date::Manip::Date documentation for details.

       -f DATEFILE, --file=DATEFILE
	   This reads each line in DATEFILE, and extracts a date from it and prints out the
	   information.

	   Blank lines and lines starting with a pound (#) are ignored. Lines not containing a
	   valid date are also ignored.

       -r FILE, --reference=FILE
	   Displays the last modification time of FILE.

       -R, --rfc-2822
	   Displayc the date and time in RFC 2822 format.

	   Example: Mon, 07 Aug 2006 12:34:56 -0600

       -u, --utc, --universal
	   Converts the date to UT (GMT) and prints out the information.

       Only one of -d, -f, or -r should be included. If more than one is included, the first one
       from the list (-d, -f, -r) is used and any other is ignored.

       The format string starts with a plus (+) and contains any of the format directives
       described in Date::Manip::Date.

KNOWN BUGS
       None known.
