Hi! I am releasing 'datekit-1.0' for 4.3BSD-Reno: a couple of free
utilities for setting post-Y2K date and time, plus timezone and DST.
Here's a brief outtake from the README, detailing the archive contents:
the 4.3BSD-Quasijarus `date' program, modified to optionally accept
4-digit years, and default to post-2000 for 2-digit years [...]
It can also:
+ set Daylight Saving Time: option -d
+ set a time zone: -t minutes-West-of-Greenwich.
Negative values for East.
the `rdate' program ported from OpenBSD 2.0: it synchronizes your
machine's clock to that of a remote host, by connecting to the
host's "time" service.
Man page for `rdate' and a Makefile for both programs are provided.
All of the above made and tested in 4.3BSD-Reno, on an emulated
