pom – display the phase of the moon



pom [-p] [-d yyyy.mm.dd] [-t hh:mm:ss]


The pom utility displays the current phase of the moon. Useful for selecting software completion target dates and predicting managerial behavior.

Use the -p option to print just the phase as a percentage.

Use the arguments -d and -t to specify a specific date and time for which the phase of the moon has to be calculated. If -d but not -t has been specified, it will calculate the phase of the moon on that day at midnight.

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
