sdate

never ending September date

NAME

sdate - never ending September date

SYNOPSIS

sdate [-e|--epoch yyyy-mm] [-l|--lib library] [--] [command]

DESCRIPTION

sdate 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 \(oq--\(cq 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.

ENVIRONMENT

LD_PRELOAD

LIMITATIONS

Library versions Every command executed within sdate needs to be linked to the same version of the C library as sdate itself.
