Examples

//--// GMT function with local offsets in 12hr format //--//
 
integer gIntMinute = 60;    //-- 1 minute in seconds
integer gIntHour   = 3600;  //-- 1 hour in seconds
integer gInt12Hr   = 43200; //-- 12hrs in seconds
integer gIntDay    = 86400; //-- 1 day in seconds
 
string fStrGMTwOffset( integer vIntLocalOffset ){
   //-- get the correct time in seconds for the given offset
  integer vIntBaseTime = ((integer)llGetGMTclock() + gIntDay + vIntLocalOffset * gIntHour) % gIntDay;
  string vStrReturn;
 
   //-- store morning or night and reduce to 12hour format if needed
  if (vIntBaseTime < gInt12Hr){
    vStrReturn = " AM";
  }else{
    vStrReturn = " PM";
    vIntBaseTime = vIntBaseTime % gInt12Hr;
  }
 
   //-- get and format minutes
  integer vIntMinutes = (vIntBaseTime % gIntHour) / gIntMinute;
  vStrReturn = (string)vIntMinutes + vStrReturn;
  if (10 > vIntMinutes){
    vStrReturn = "0" + vStrReturn;
  }
 
   //-- add in the correct hour, force 0 to 12
  if (vIntBaseTime < gIntHour){
    vStrReturn = "12:" + vStrReturn;
  }else{
    vStrReturn = (string)(vIntBaseTime / gIntHour) + ":" + vStrReturn;
  }
  return vStrReturn;
}
 
default{
  touch_start( integer vIntTouched ){
     //-- '-8' is california time, no adjustment for DST
    llSay( 0, "The time is now " + fStrGMTwOffset( -8 ) );
  }
}
// Gets the number of milliseconds since midnight UTC.
integer GetGMTmsclock()
{
    string stamp = llGetTimestamp();
    return
        (integer) llGetSubString(stamp, 11, 12) * 3600000 +
        (integer) llGetSubString(stamp, 14, 15) * 60000 +
        llRound((float) llGetSubString(stamp, 17, -2) * 1000.0);
}
