Dateshift is a tool for shifting date/time. In particular it allows a process or set of process to run with a different clock setting, without having to change the system clock. Dateshift is useful because changing the system clock is inconvenient and requires root privileges.

Release Notes: This release adds support for clock_gettime interception, as used by date(1) on newer Linux distributions. It changes command line handling to better support executing a command directly. libtool/automake build scripts have been updated.
Release Notes: Works well on Linux, but still a few problems on Solaris.
