NAME
       dm_date - print out the system date and time

SYNOPSIS
       This performs the same operation	as the unix 'date' command, but	using
       the Date::Manip module.

	  dm_date [OPTION]... [+FORMAT]

DESCRIPTION
       This displays information about the current system time,	or some	other
       time. Options are:

       -h, --help
	   Print online	help.

       -d STRING, --date=STRING
	   Display time	described by STRING. STRING can	be any string which
	   can be parsed by Date::Manip.  Please refer to the
	   Date::Manip::Date documentation for details.

       -f DATEFILE, --file=DATEFILE
	   This	reads each line	in DATEFILE, and extracts a date from it and
	   prints out the information.

	   Blank lines and lines starting with a pound (#) are ignored.	Lines
	   not containing a valid date are also	ignored.

       -r FILE,	--reference=FILE
	   Displays the	last modification time of FILE.

       -R, --rfc-2822
	   Displayc the	date and time in RFC 2822 format.

	   Example: Mon, 07 Aug	2006 12:34:56 -0600

       -u, --utc, --universal
	   Converts the	date to	UT (GMT) and prints out	the information.

       Only one	of -d, -f, or -r should	be included. If	more than one is
       included, the first one from the	list (-d, -f, -r) is used and any
       other is	ignored.

       The format string starts	with a plus (+)	and contains any of the	format
       directives described in Date::Manip::Date.
