NAME

       date - date and time

SYNOPSIS

       date [ option ] [ seconds ]

DESCRIPTION

       Print the date, in the format

            Tue Aug 16 17:03:52 CDT 1977

       The options are

       -u     Report Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) rather than local time.

       -n     Report  the date as the number of seconds since the epoch, 00:00:00 GMT, January 1,
              1970.

       The conversion from Greenwich Mean Time to local time depends on the $timezone environment
       variable; see ctime(3).

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