NAME

       pmdate - display an offset date

SYNOPSIS

       pmdate [ offset ... ] format

DESCRIPTION

       pmdate displays the current date and/or time, with an optional offset.

       An offset is specified with a leading sign (``+'' or ``-''), followed by an integer value,
       followed by one of the following ``scale'' specifiers;

       S      seconds
       M      minutes
       H      hours
       d      days
       m      months
       y      years

       The output format follows the same rules as for date(1) and strftime(3).

       For example, the following will display the date a week ago as DDMMYYYY;
               pmdate -7d %d%m%Y

PCP ENVIRONMENT

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory
       names used by PCP.  On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values
       for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF  variable  may  be  used  to  specify  an  alternative
       configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
