Have a problem with command faketime.

Trying to use it, but always get an error:

faketime -t "2000-01-01 01:00:00"
/usr/bin/faketime: 102: exec: 2000-01-01 01:00:00: not found

I have Ubuntu 12.04

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Read the documentation. The the above, faketime is trying to exec/execute "2000-01-..." which means you are using faketime incorrectly. Refer to the examples in the provide link (or other suitable documentation/man page). – pst Dec 7 '12 at 17:58
Can you explain how to make it correct for date 2000-01-01 01:00:00 – Viacheslav Kondratiuk Dec 10 '12 at 6:56

Do you read faketime man page?

faketime 'last Friday 5 pm' /bin/date
faketime '2000-01-01 01:00:00' /bin/date
