ALARM(1)                    Toshiba Linux Utilities                   ALARM(1)



NAME
       alarm(1,2) - set(7,n,1 builtins) the alarm(1,2) power time(1,2,n) and or date of a Toshiba laptop

SYNOPSIS
       alarm(1,2) [ -dlhv ]

DESCRIPTION
       alarm(1,2)  allows  you  to  set(7,n,1 builtins)  the alarm(1,2) power on time(1,2,n) and/or date of any
       Toshiba laptop or notebook that supports the alarm(1,2)  power  on  feature.
       Older models may only support an alarm(1,2) power on time.

       alarm(1,2)  allows fairly complex time(1,2,n) specifications, extending the POSIX.2
       standard.  It accepts times of the form HH:MM to set(7,n,1 builtins)  the  alarm(1,2)  at  a
       specific  time(1,2,n)  of day.  (If that time(1,2,n) is already past, the next day is
       assumed.)  You may also specify midnight, noon, or  teatime  (4pm)  and
       you  can  have  a time-of-day suffixed with AM or PM for the morning or
       the evening.  You can also say what day the alarm(1,2)  should  be  set(7,n,1 builtins),  by
       giving a date in(1,8) the form month-name day with an optional year, or giv-
       ing a date of the form MMDDYY or MM/DD/YY or DD.MM.YY.  The  specifica-
       tion  of  a date must follow the specification of the time(1,2,n) of day.  You
       can also give times like now + count time-units, where  the  time-units
       can be minutes, hours, days, or weeks and you can tell alarm(1,2) to set(7,n,1 builtins) the
       alarm(1,2) today by suffixing the time(1,2,n) with  today  and  to  set(7,n,1 builtins)  the  alarm(1,2)
       tomorrow by suffixing the time(1,2,n) with tomorrow.

       For  example, to set(7,n,1 builtins) the alarm(1,2) at 4pm three days from now, you would do
       alarm(1,2) 4pm + 3 days, to set(7,n,1 builtins) the alarm(1,2) at 10:00am on July 31,  you  would
       do alarm(1,2) 10am Jul 31 and to set(7,n,1 builtins) the alarm(1,2) at 1am tomorrow, you would do
       alarm(1,2) 1am tomorrow.

OPTIONS
       -d, --disable
              Disable the alarm(1,2) power on feature of the laptop.

       -l, --localtime
              Use if(3,n) the hardware CMOS clock(3,n) on the laptop is set(7,n,1 builtins) to localtime
              rather than GMT/UTC.

       -h     Print a short synopsis of the command line arguments.

       -v, --version
              Print the version(1,3,5) number and then exit.

BUGS
