NAME

       setclock - sets the hardware clock from the system clock


SYNOPSIS

       setclock


DESCRIPTION

       setclock  sets  the hardware clock on the current system to the current
       time stored in the system clock. /etc/sysconfig/clock is read  to  dis-
       cover  the  format the time should be converted to before storage. This
       is the same method used by the standard Red  Hat  startup  scripts  and
       timeconfig(8).

                           Configures the format used by the hardware clock.
