zleave - notify you via Zephyr when you have to leave
zleave [ [+]hhmm [ -m Reminder Message ] ]
Zleave waits until the specified time, then reminds you
that you have to leave, using the Zephyr(1) Notification
Service. You are reminded 5 minutes and 1 minute before
the actual time, at the time, and every minute thereafter.
When you log off, zleave exits just before it would have
sent 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
If the time is preceded by `+', the alarm will go off in
hours and minutes from the current time.
If no argument is given, zleave prompts with "When do you
have to leave?". A reply of newline causes zleave to exit,
otherwise the reply is assumed to be a time. This form is
suitable for inclusion in a .login or .profile.
The cancel option cancels the currently running zleave.
If another zleave is running, it is automatically killed
when a new time to leave is set. The process id is stored
in the file /tmp/zleave.uid, where uid is the user's UNIX
If the -m argument is specified, the next argument is
appended to the standard message (a sentence describing
how much time remains until the appointed hour) sent at
appropriate times. If you want to append a multiple-word
message, you normally must quote it with double quotes (")
(This is necessary for users of csh(1) and sh(1).)
Zleave automatically subscribes you to Zephyr class "MES-
SAGE", instance "LEAVE". You do not have to add anything
to your default subscriptions file (see zctl(1)). The
reminder message is displayed by the WindowGram client
If Zephyr is unavailable, zleave acts essentially like
Zleave ignores SIGINT, SIGQUIT, and SIGTERM. To get rid
of it you should either log off or use the cancel option.
