NAME
       stime - print current time information to standard out

SYNOPSIS
	 stime

	 stime UKIRT

	 stime -epoch 837459706	JCMT

	 stime -h

DESCRIPTION
       This program prints current local time, UTC, Julian date, modified
       Julian date, current equinox and	year day to standard output.
       Additionally, local sidereal time for the specified telescope is	also
       displayed.

ARGUMENTS
       The optional argument can be used to specify the	details	for a
       particular telescope. This affects the local sidereal time calculation.
       The default is for the LST of Mauna Kea to be listed (specifically the
       James Clerk Maxwell Telescope). The sidereal time does not reflect the
       longitude of the	computer used to run the command.

       The format of this string is identical to that required by "palObs"
       routine in the "Astro::PAL" package.

OPTIONS
       The following command line options are supported:

       -epoch
	   Override the	time for which the LST will be calculated. By default
	   will	use the	current	time/date. This	epoch should be	supplied in
	   seconds in the Unix epoch (essentially the argument to the perl
	   localtime/gmtime functions).

       -help
	   Simple help message.

       -man
	   This	manual page.

OUTPUT
       Example output of this program is:

	At local date and time	       Fri Mar 24 14:50:31 2000
	The UT date and	time was:      Sat Mar 25 00:50:31 2000
	Julian date:		       2451628.54
	Modified Julian	date:	       51628.04
	Equinox	for today is	       2000.23
	Local Day number (UT):	       84 (85)
	For telescope JCMT
	The local sidereal time	was    2 39 46.16
