LEAVE(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      LEAVE(1)

NAME
     leave -- remind you when you have to leave

SYNOPSIS
     leave [[+]hhmm]

DESCRIPTION
     Leave 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.

     Options:

     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 con-
	   verted 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.

     Leave ignores interrupts, quits, and terminates.  To get rid of it	you
     should either log off or use `kill	-9' giving its process id.
