The TIME command displays the current date and time or translates a time between internal and external format.





TIME {time}





If no time is specified, the date and time are reported in the form


14:30:00  12 May 1993


This format is fixed, regardless of use of the DATE.FORMAT command.


If time is specified, the converted form of this time (internal to external or vice versa) is reported.


The TIME INTERNAL form displays the current time in internal form (seconds since midnight).



See DATE for an alternative format date and time report.



@SYSTEM.RETURN.CODE is not affected by this command.
