alarm - set the alarm power time and or date of a Toshiba laptop
alarm [ -dlhv ]
alarm allows you to set the alarm power on time and/or date of any
Toshiba laptop or notebook that supports the alarm power on feature.
Older models may only support an alarm power on time.
alarm allows fairly complex time specifications, extending the POSIX.2
standard. It accepts times of the form HH:MM to set the alarm at a
specific time of day. (If that time is already past, the next day is
assumed.) You may also specify midnight, noon, or teatime (4pm) and
you can have a time-of-day suffixed with AM or PM for the morning or
the evening. You can also say what day the alarm should be set, by
giving a date in the form month-name day with an optional year, or
giving a date of the form MMDDYY or MM/DD/YY or DD.MM.YY. The
specification of a date must follow the specification of the time of
day. You can also give times like now + count time-units, where the
time-units can be minutes, hours, days, or weeks and you can tell alarm
to set the alarm today by suffixing the time with today and to set the
alarm tomorrow by suffixing the time with tomorrow.
For example, to set the alarm at 4pm three days from now, you would do
alarm 4pm + 3 days, to set the alarm at 10:00am on July 31, you would
do alarm 10am Jul 31 and to set the alarm at 1am tomorrow, you would do
alarm 1am tomorrow.
Disable the alarm power on feature of the laptop.
Use if the hardware CMOS clock on the laptop is set to localtime
rather than GMT/UTC.
-h Print a short synopsis of the command line arguments.
Print the version number and then exit.
You cannot set the power on alarm date to everyday.
