zleave - notify you via Zephyr when you have to leave
[ -m Reminder Message
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 hours.

prompts with "When do you have to
leave?". A reply of newline causes zleave

is set. The process id is stored in the file /tmp/zleave. uid
is the user's UNIX uid.
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
