pdd [OPTIONS] [KEYWORDS ...]
pdd (python3 date diff) is a small utility to calculate date and time difference. It can also be used as a timer. If no program arguments are specified it shows the current date, time and timezone. Features - easy to use, minimal dependencies - calculate date and time difference - add, subtract duration (timeslice) to/from date (time) - calculate diff from today and now - countdown timer - custom resolution stopwatch - non-verbose mode for background timers - show current date, time and timezone Operational notes - ISO 8601 format. Month can be specified as month number (e.g. Jan - 1, Dec - 12). - Time is in 24-hr format. - The absolute difference is shown. Argument order is ignored. - The end date is excluded in date difference calculations. - Hour, minute or second can be omitted. Partial inputs are recognized as mm:ss or ss. - The keybind to stop timers is Ctrl-C.
-h, --help Show help text and exit. -d yyyy mmm dd [yyyy mmm dd | y m d] Calculate date difference. -t hh:mm:ss [hh:mm:ss | h:m:s] Calculate time difference. --add Add a duration or timeslice to date (/today) or time (/now). --sub Subtract a duration or timeslice from date (/today) or time (/now). --day yyyy mmm dd Show the day of the week on a date. -c hh:mm:ss Set a countdown timer with duration in hours, minutes and seconds. -s [resolution] Start a custom resolution stopwatch. resolution can range from 1 to 9. Default 3 for millisecond. -q Quiet mode for a countdown timer or stopwatch to be run in the background. The counter is shown only when Ctrl-C is pressed.
