NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     leave - remind you when you have to leave

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     leave [[+]hhmm]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

     The options are as follows:

     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 in  minutes.   In
ambiguous cases,
  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
