Name
       dp - parse dates RFC 822-style

Syntax
       /usr/lib/mh/dp  [  -form	 file  ] [ -format string ] [ -help ] [ -width
       columns ] dates

Description
       The command parses dates according to the ARPA Internet	standard.   It
       also  understands  many non-standard formats, such as those produced by
       TOPS-20 sites and some UNIX sites using It is useful for seeing how  MH
       will interpret a date.

       The  program treats each argument as a single date, and prints the date
       out in the official RFC 822 format.   Hence,  it	 is  usually  best  to
       enclose each argument in double quotes (") for the shell.

Options
       -form file
		 Overrides  the default output format of The output is format‐
		 ted according to the  instructions  in	 the  specified	 file.
		 This must be a format file; see

       -format string
		 Overrides  the default output format of The output is format‐
		 ted according to the instructions in  the  specified  string.
		 This must be a format string; see

		 The  argument	to the -format option must be interpreted as a
		 single token by the shell that invokes Therefore, you	should
		 usually  place	 the  argument	to  this  option inside double
		 quotes (").

       -help	 Prints a list of the valid options to this command.

       -width columns
		 Specifies the width of the screen in columns.

       The defaults for this command are as follows:

	      -width defaults to the width of the terminal

Examples
       This is the default format string used by
       %<(nodate{text})error: %{text}%|%(pretty{text})%>

       When an error is detected, this prints error: and the date that	is  in
       error.  Otherwise, it outputs the proper RFC 822 format of the date.
