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(); // script restarts when SIM restarts
   }
   
   touch_start(integer num)
   {
       llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL, "The last system restart was @ " + BOOT_TIME);
       llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL, "Right now it is " + llGetTimestamp());
   }

}

</lsl>
