       leave - Reminds you when to leave

       leave [+] [hhmm]

       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 or file.

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

       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

       Commands:  calendar(1)
