        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 giv‐
        ing a date of the form MMDDYY or MM/DD/YY or DD.MM.YY.  The  specifica‐
        tion  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.


        -d, --disable
               Disable the alarm power on feature of the laptop.
        -l, --localtime
               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.
        -v, --version
               Print the version number and then exit.


        You cannot set the power on alarm date to everyday.
