NAME

  leave	- Reminds you when to leave

SYNOPSIS

  leave	[+] [hhmm]

DESCRIPTION

  The leave command waits until	the specified time, then reminds you to
  leave. You are reminded 5 minutes and	1 minute before	the actual time, at
  the time, and	every minute thereafter. When you log out, leave exits just
  before it would have displayed the next message.

  The time of day is in	the form hhmm, where hh	is a time in hours (on a 12-
  or 24- hour clock). All times	are converted to a 12-hour clock, and assumed
  to be	in the next 12 hours.

  If the time is preceded by a + (plus sign), the alarm	will go	off in hours
  and minutes from the current time.

  If you do not	specify	a time,	leave prompts with the following:

       When do you have	to leave?

  Pressing the newline key in response causes leave to exit; otherwise,	the
  reply	is assumed to be a time. This form is suitable for inclusion in	a
  .login or .profile file.

  The leave command ignores Interrupts,	Quits, and Terminates. To exit from
  leave, either	log out	or use kill -9 and the process ID.

EXAMPLES

  To remind yourself to	leave at 3:45, enter:

       leave 345

  The system returns a message similar to the following:

       Alarm set for Thu Aug 2 15:45:00	1990
