This sample demonstrate several time and date features provided by Nut/OS. Furthermore, it can be used to setup the RTC hardware on your board, if available.
When started, the following output appears on the console.

Setting Date and Time
Press Z and enter the time deviation, given in hours and minutes offset to Greenwich Mean Time. By default it is set to +5:00 (Western America), for Central Europe set it to -1.
Enter time difference in format HH:MM: -1
Now press S to enter the current date and time in the requested format. The time must be entered in 24h format.
Enter date, use format YYYY/MM/DD : 2012/10/12 Enter time, use 24h format HH:MM:SS: 16:22:30
Boards with RTC Hardware
On boards with RTC hardware, the following may be printed:
Registering RTC hardware...power failure
In this case, the RTC chip lost track of the date and time, probably caused by a failure of the backup power supply.
You can fix this by manually setting the local time.
