DESCRIPTION

Or the format specified by the format option.
The options are
u    Report Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) rather than local time.
n    Report the date as the number of seconds since the epoch, 00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970.
i    Report the date as ISO–8601 without time and timezone suffix.
t    Report the date as ISO–8601 with time and timezone suffix.

The conversion from Greenwich Mean Time to local time depends on the $timezone environment variable; see ctime(2).

If the optional argument seconds is present, it is used as the time to convert rather than the real time.

Clock draws a simple analog clock in its window.
