=head1 NAME

stime - print current time information to standard out



  stime UKIRT

  stime -epoch 837459706 JCMT

  stime -h


This program prints current local time, UTC, Julian date,
modified Julian date, current equinox and year day to standard output.
Additionally, local sidereal time for the specified telescope is
also displayed.


The optional argument can be used to specify the details for a
particular telescope. This affects the local sidereal time
calculation. The default is for the LST of Mauna Kea to be listed
(specifically the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope). The sidereal time
does not reflect the longitude of the computer used to run the

The format of this string is identical to that required by
C<slaObs> routine in the C<Astro::SLA> package.

=head1 OPTIONS

The following command line options are supported:

=over 4

=item B<-epoch>

Override the time for which the LST will be calculated. By default
will use the current time/date. This epoch should be supplied in
seconds in the Unix epoch (essentially the argument to the perl
localtime/gmtime functions).

=item B<-help>

Simple help message.

=item B<-man>

This manual page.


=head1 OUTPUT

Example output of this program is:

 At local date and time		Fri Mar 24 14:50:31 2000
 The UT date and time was:	Sat Mar 25 00:50:31 2000
 Julian date:			2451628.54
 Modified Julian date:		51628.04
 Equinox for today is 		2000.23
 Local Day number (UT): 	84 (85)
 For telescope JCMT
 The local sidereal time was	2 39 46.16

#  History:
#    15 Jul 1996 (timj)
#       Write first version in C
#       Replacement for stime on the VMS machines.
#       Output of VAX was:
#         at local time             9 41 46.00
#         local sidereal time was   4 55 36.46
#         Universal Time           19 41 46.00
#         Julian date               2450280.32
#         equinox for today            1996.54
#         day number                    197
#      For Unix epoch 837459706 seconds. This version of stime
#      gives LST of 4 55 35.67 [within a second of the Vax version]
#    14 Feb 2000 (rpt)
#       Port to perl using Astro::SLA
#    $Log$
#    Revision 1.2  2004/02/04 00:42:08  timj
#    + Lots of tidying up
#    + Now uses ut2lst_tel rather than lstnow_tel
#    + Now have -h and -man options
#    + Add -epoch option for overriding calculated date
#    + Add GPL
#    Revision 1.1  2000/03/29 03:28:48  timj
#    First version
