NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       leave - Reminds you when to leave

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       leave [+] [hhmm]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

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

       If the time is preceded by a + (plus sign), the alarm will
       go off in hours and minutes from the current time.

       If  you do not specify a time, leave prompts with the following:
 When do you have to leave?

       Pressing the newline key in response causes leave to exit;
       otherwise, the reply is assumed to be a time. This form is
       suitable for inclusion in a or file.

       The leave command ignores Interrupts,  Quits,  and  Terminates.
  To  exit from leave, either log out or use kill -9
       and the process ID.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To remind yourself to leave at 3:45, enter: leave 345

       The system returns a message  similar  to  the  following:
       Alarm set for Thu Aug 2 15:45:00 1990
