NAMEsdate - never ending September date
SYNOPSISsdate [-e|--epoch yyyy-mm] [-l|--lib library] [--] [command]
DESCRIPTIONsdate runs a command in an environment wherein it wraps the libc localtime() and gmtime() calls such that the program will use the eternal September date. The wrapper functions are in a shared library /usr/lib/libsdate/libsdate.so* which is loaded through the LD_PRELOAD mechanism of the dynamic loader. (See ld.so(8))
OPTIONS-e yyyy-mm, --epoch yyyy-mm Specify an alternative epoch, default is 1993-09. -l library, --lib library Specify an alternative wrapper library. [--] command Any command you want to be ran. Use ‘--’ if in the command you have other options that may confuse sdate's option parsing. -h Display help. -v Display version.
FILES/usr/lib/libsdate/* The shared library containing the wrapper functions.
LIMITATIONSLibrary versions Every command executed within sdate needs to be linked to the same version of the C library as sdate itself.
