From: Earle Martin Date: 13:10 on 14 Jan 2004 Subject: date Every time I have to set the date on a Linux box I have to read the documentation for 'date', because I can never remember what format to specify. earle@batou:~$ date --help | grep MM or: date [-u|--utc|--universal] [MMDDhhmm[[CC]YY][.ss]] So that's month, day, hour, minute, and *then* [optional] century, year, and *then* seconds? What kind of crackhead came up with this? Would it have been too hard to have it understand ISO 8601? FFS.  Before getting it set up to get the time over the network.
