ddate is a ‘fun’ program to display the date in Discordian calendar.
ddate prints the date in Discordian date format.
Today is Setting Orange, the 14th day of Confusion in the YOLD 3178
Unfortunately, ddate was disabled / removed from util-linux.
If you would like to use ddate, it is rather trivial to compile.
Download the latest util-linux (2.21.2 at the time of this post)
Extract the archive:
tar xzvf util-linux-2.21.2.tar.gz
If needed, install gcc and ncurses headers (ncurses-devel on Fedora or libncurses5-dev on Ubuntu)
sudo yum install gcc ncurses-devel
sudo apt-get install gcc libncurses5-dev
Update: I also had to install the pam headers
sudo yum install pam-devel
Compile and install ddate
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-ddate
sudo cp ddate /usr/local/bin
