8.11.9.60 Date_and_Time Intrinsic

     CALL Date_and_Time(Date, Time, Zone, Values)

Date: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Time: CHARACTER; OPTIONAL; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Zone: CHARACTER; OPTIONAL; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Values: INTEGER(KIND=1); OPTIONAL; DIMENSION(8); INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: f90.

Description:

Returns:

Date
The date in the form ccyymmdd: century, year, month and day;
Time
The time in the form hhmmss.ss: hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds;
Zone
The difference between local time and UTC (GMT) in the form Shhmm: sign, hours and minutes, e.g. -0500 (winter in New York);
Values
The year, month of the year, day of the month, time difference in minutes from UTC, hour of the day, minutes of the hour, seconds of the minute, and milliseconds of the second in successive values of the array.

Programs making use of this intrinsic might not be Year 10000 (Y10K) compliant. For example, the date might appear, to such programs, to wrap around (change from a larger value to a smaller one) as of the Year 10000.

On systems where a millisecond timer isn't available, the millisecond value is returned as zero.
