/usr/sadm/bin/errtime [ -W width ] [ -e error ] [ -f format ]
/usr/sadm/bin/helptime [ -W width ] [ -h help ] [ -f format ]
/usr/sadm/bin/valtime [ -f format ] input
All messages are limited in length to 70 characters and are formatted automatically. Any white space used in the definition (including NEWLINE) is stripped. The -W option cancels the automatic formatting. When a tilde is placed at the beginning or end of a message definition, the default text is inserted at that point, allowing both custom text and the default text to be displayed.
If the prompt, help or error message is not defined, the default message (as defined under NOTES) is displayed.
Three visual tool modules are linked to the cktime command. They are errtime (which formats and displays an error message), helptime (which formats and displays a help message), and valtime (which validates a response). These modules should be used in conjunction with FML objects. In this instance, the FML object defines the prompt. When format is defined in the errtime and helptime modules, the messages will describe the expected format.
%H = hour (00 - 23)
%I = hour (00 - 12)
%M = minute (00 - 59)
%p = ante meridian or post meridian
%r = time as %I:%M:%S %p
%R = time as %H:%M (the default format)
%S = seconds (00 - 59)
%T = time as %H:%M:%S
The default prompt for cktime is:
Enter a time of day [?,q]:
The default error message is:
ERROR: Please enter the time of day. Format is <format>.
The default help message is:
Please enter the time of day. Format is <format>.
When the quit option is chosen (and allowed), q is returned along with the return code 3. The valtime module will not produce any output. It returns 0 for success and non-zero for failure.
