Time Intrinsic (VXT)

     CALL Time(Time)

Time: CHARACTER*8; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: vxt.


Returns in Time a character representation of the current time as obtained from ctime(3).

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 FDate Intrinsic (subroutine), for an equivalent routine.
