In the usual case, nftimestamp is invoked with a list of notesfiles. The invoking user's sequencer timestamps for the specified notesfiles are set to the current time. The -t option allows the user to specify some different time. Notesfiles are specified in the same manner as on the notes command line. Include notesfiles by using their name; the shell wildcard characters (?*) are correctly expanded. Exclude notesfiles be prefixing their name with an exclamation mark: !notesfile. The -f option reads a list of notesfiles to be included and excluded from the specifid file.
The Notesfile Administrator can use the -u option to set the sequencer for systems and other users.
The seqtoascii and seqtobinary utilities provide the same function as this program. Using those programs, the user must change each timestamp manually and then restore the sequencer file. Nftimestamp provides a simpler interface.
