I need a 'date' binary

I need a 'date' binary

Post by Lee All » Tue, 11 May 1999 04:00:00

I need a 'date' binary (/bin/date) from a glibc distribution.  Could
someone please email it to me, or send me an email telling me where on

In case you're wondering why anyone would ask such a silly thing...

I have two running Linux systems that are pre-glibc (hey, they work),
and one 'mini' (LRP) system that is glibc.  I need a 'date' binary to
run on the glibc system.  I don't have such a binary.  I can't compile
on the glibc system (no compiler and a host of other reasons).

Internet somewhere, to no avail.  Yeah, I know it's out there, I just
don't know where.

1. Calculating yesterday's date using GNU 'date' (was Re: Require a script)

Using GNU 'date':

$ date --date '1 years 2 days ago'

The GNU 'date' command comes with the GNU 'sh-utils' package available
on all GNU FTP mirrors.
