Hey, I've started using geektools and I'm completely new to the language used in it (bash? unix? I have no idea what its called :P ). Anyway I'm looking for something which can output a date like:

06/10/09

I know how to get the day and year, but the month eludes me, so far I can only get it to display in words (ie. October instead of 10).

Can anyone help me out?

date "+%d/%m/%y"

That should do it.

you can do "man command"

where "command" is the command you'd like to learn more about

eg:

man date

or

man ps

gives you a bit of a description with some example syntax.. "q" exits man.
