Summary

Function: string llGetTimestamp( );

Returns a string that is the current date and time in the UTC time zone in the format "YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.ff..fZ"

Appears to be accurate to milliseconds.

Examples

<lsl>// Reset tracker

string BOOT_TIME;

default {

   state_entry()
   {
       BOOT_TIME = llGetTimestamp(); // state_entry is triggered on script reset.
   }
   
   touch_start(integer num)
   {
       llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL, "The last script was last reset @ " + BOOT_TIME);
       llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL, "Right now it is " + llGetTimestamp());
   }

}</lsl> <lsl>// Greeting

default {

   state_entry()
   {
       llSetTouchText("Greet");
   }
   touch_start(integer num)
   {
       list TimeStamp = llParseString2List(llGetTimestamp(),["-",":"],["T"]); //Get timestamp and split into parts in a list
       integer Hour = llList2Integer(TimeStamp,4);
       if(Hour<12)		
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Morning, Oliver Sintim-Aboagye!");	
       else if(Hour<17)
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Afternoon, " + llDetectedName(0));		
       else
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Evening, " + llKey2Name(llDetectedKey(0)));
   }
}</lsl>

    • compatible with llParseString2List( llGetTimestamp(), ["-", "T", ":", "."], [] )
  • Stamp2WeekdayStr - Weekday from (Y, M, D) ex: "Friday" from (2009, 2, 13)
  • Millisec - Converts Unix timestamp to integer milliseconds accurate to within a month.
