822-date(1)                     dpkg utilities                     822-date(1)



NAME
       822-date - Print date and time in RFC2822 format

SYNOPSIS
       822-date

DESCRIPTION
       822-date  displays the current date and time in the format described in
       RFC2822.  It does so by simply calling date(1) with the -R option.

       Using 822-date is deprecated since date(1) provides the same  function-
       ality when called with the -R.

OPTIONS
       822-date does not take any arguments or options.

BUGS
       This facility really ought to be part of date(1).

SEE ALSO
       Internet Message Format (RFC2822), date(1).

AUTHOR
       822-date is a really simple wrapper around date(1).  By its simplicity,
       the code is probably not copyrightable and should be considered  to  be
       in  the  public  domain. This man page was written by Frank Lichtenheld
       based on an earlier version by Ian Jackson and was also put in the pub-
       lic domain.
