FDate Intrinsic (subroutine)

     CALL FDate(Date)


Intrinsic groups: unix.


Returns the current date (using the same format as CTIME()) in Date.

Equivalent to:

     CALL CTIME(Date, TIME8())

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.

See CTime Intrinsic (subroutine).

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine.
