PC-DOS 2.0+ (revised from 1.1; revised again in PC-DOS
MS-DOS equivalent: DATE (2.0+)

or obtain the current date from the system clock.
sets the system date to Fri 1-01-1988. You may separate day,

returns the current date and prompts you for a new one.
The date you entered used an invalid format. Check your entry
and try again.
To reset the date, type
and enter the current date in one of the allowable formats.
In version 3.3 of PC-DOS, if your computer has an internal
clock, the DATE command also resets it. (This is the inverse of
previous versions.) You can include the DATE command in an
AUTOEXEC.BAT file so that you are not prompted for the date when
you boot DOS. If there is no clock that DOS can read, the prompts
still come up. To change the date format, create a CONFIG.SYS
file that includes the COUNTRY command.
