Script that checks login time

I need help finishing a script that checks login time.  I am running AIX.  I think I can add it to the "auth_method" entry in the /etc/security/login.cfg.  The part I have written follows.  Any help would be appriciated.


****************************************************************
/usr/bin/check_login_time
****************************************************************
#!/bin/ksh      * or other shell

USER=$1
If [USER eq "root"]
  exit 0
fi

if [USER eq "eod"]
  exit 0
fi

if [ ** check the time ** -lt 4:00]
  if [** check the time ** -gt 22:59]
    echo "You may not login between 11:00 PM and 4:00 AM due to End of Day Processing.  Please try again later..."
    exit 1
  fi
fi
exit 0

**************************************************************

Thanks for your help,
Rob

Made a couple of mods to make it more flexible, but the formatting did the trick.  Thanks for the help.
