Summary

Function: integer llGetDayOffset( );

Return the number of seconds added to the current time before calculating the current environmental time for the parcel. llGetDayOffset returns the value for the current parcel, llGetRegionDayOffset produces the same value for the entire region.
Returns an integer

Examples

// print the apparent time of day as HH:MM (%), just like the environment window in the viewer.
// Time of day is a fraction between 0 and 1, 0 is midnight, 0.5 is noon
string printTimeOfDay(float dayFraction) {
    integer hours = (integer)(dayFraction * 24);
    integer minutes = (integer)(dayFraction * 24 * 60) % 60;
    integer percent = (integer)(dayFraction * 100);
    return (string)hours + ":" + llGetSubString((string)(100+minutes), 1, 2) + " (" + (string)percent + "%)";
