       date [ option ] [ seconds ]

       Print the date, in the format

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

       The conversion from Greenwich Mean Time to local time depends on the $timezone environment
       variable; see ctime(2).

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