%p locale's equivalent of either AM or PM; blank if not known

%x locale's date representation (e.g., 12/31/99)

%X locale's time representation (e.g., 23:13:48)

%y last two digits of year (00..99)

%Y year

%z +hhmm numeric time zone (e.g., -0400)

%:z +hh:mm numeric time zone (e.g., -04:00)

%::z +hh:mm:ss numeric time zone (e.g., -04:00:00)

%:::z numeric time zone with : to necessary precision (e.g., -04, +05:30)

%Z alphabetic time zone abbreviation (e.g., EDT)

By default, date pads numeric fields with zeroes. The following optional flags may follow
'%':

- (hyphen) do not pad the field

_ (underscore) pad with spaces

0 (zero) pad with zeros

^ use upper case if possible

# use opposite case if possible

After any flags comes an optional field width, as a decimal number; then an optional
modifier, which is either E to use the locale's alternate representations if available, or
O to use the locale's alternate numeric symbols if available.

EXAMPLES


Convert seconds since the epoch (1970-01-01 UTC) to a date

$ date --date='@2147483647'

Show the time on the west coast of the US (use tzselect(1) to find TZ)

$ TZ='America/Los_Angeles' date

Show the local time for 9AM next Friday on the west coast of the US

$ date --date='TZ="America/Los_Angeles" 09:00 next Fri'

DATE STRING


The --date=STRING is a mostly free format human readable date string such as "Sun, 29 Feb
2004 16:21:42 -0800" or "2004-02-29 16:21:42" or even "next Thursday". A date string may
contain items indicating calendar date, time of day, time zone, day of week, relative
time, relative date, and numbers. An empty string indicates the beginning of the day.
The date string format is more complex than is easily documented here but is fully
described in the info documentation.
