The Time command sets the system clock and determines the time that the TIME$ function returns.

Comments and Examples

The TIME command uses the 24-hour clock system. 12:01 a.m. becomes 00:01 in this system; 11:59 p.m. is 23:59.

The following example sets the hour to 16 (equivalent to 4:00 p.m. on a twelve-hour clock), the minutes to 35, and the seconds to 42:

TIME 16:35:42

The next command resets the time to 00:00:00:

TIME :

The following command resets the time to 00:00:37:

TIME ::37

The time is reset to 3:00:14 with the following command:

TIME 3::14

Defaults

  1. Display the current time in hh:mm:ss format.
  2. Set to zero.

Parameters

Time parameters may be separated either with a dash (-) or a colon (:). hh parameter is a one or two-digit number from 0 to 24 which represents the hour of the day. mm parameter is a one or two-digit number from 0 to 60 which represents the number of minutes past the hour. ss parameter is a one or two-digit number from 0 to 60 which represents the number of seconds past the minute.

Technical Considerations

Changes to the time apply only to the issuing workstation - current session only.
