Lexicals, F$TIME, Example
*Conan The Librarian
$ OPEN/WRITE OUTFILE DATA.DAT $ TIME_STAMP = F$TIME() $ WRITE OUTFILE TIME_STAMP This example shows how to use the F$TIME function to time-stamp a file that you create from a command procedure. OUTFILE is the logical name for the file DATA.DAT, which is opened for writing. The F$TIME function returns the current date and time string, and assigns this string to the symbol TIME_STAMP. The WRITE command writes the date and time string to OUTFILE.
