NAME
     leave -- remind you when you have to leave

SYNOPSIS
     leave [[+]hhmm]

DESCRIPTION
     The leave utility waits until the specified time, then reminds you	that
     you have to leave.	 You are reminded 5 minutes and	1 minute before	the
     actual time, at the time, and every minute	thereafter.  When you log off,
     leave exits just before it	would have printed the next message.

     The following options are available:

     hhmm    The time of day is	in the form hhmm where hh is a time in hours
	     (on a 12 or 24 hour clock), and mm	are minutes.  All times	are
	     converted to a 12 hour clock, and assumed to be in	the next 12
	     hours.

     +	     If	the time is preceded by	`+', the alarm will go off in hours
	     and minutes from the current time.

     If	no argument is given, leave prompts with "When do you have to leave?".
     A reply of	newline	causes leave to	exit, otherwise	the reply is assumed
     to	be a time.  This form is suitable for inclusion	in a .login or
     .profile.

     To	get rid	of leave you should either log off or use `kill	-s KILL' giv-
     ing its process id.
