DATE(I)                      11/1/74                      DATE(I)


     date - print and set the date


     date [ s ] [ mmddhhmm[yy] ]


     If no argument is given,  the  current  date  and  time  are

     printed.   If an argument is given, the current date is set.

     The first mm is the month number; dd is the  day  number  in

     the  month;  hh  is  the  hour  number (24 hour system); the

     second mm is the minute number; yy is the last 2  digits  of

     the year number and is optional.  For example:

           date 10080045

     sets the date to Oct 8, 12:45 AM.  The current year  is  the

     default  if  no  year  is mentioned.  The system operates in

     GMT.  Date takes care of the conversion to  and  from  local

     standard and daylight time.

     If the argument is ``s,'' date calls the network file  store

     via the TIU interface (if present) and sets the clock to the

     time thereby obtained.


     ``No permission'' if you aren't the super-user and  you  try

     to  change  the  date; ``bad conversion'' if the date set is

     syntactically incorrect.
