Eloquence Language Manual

11 System Clock

The clock can be used to read the date, time of day, or the seconds elapsed since 1 January 1970. It can also be used to trigger events in an Eloquence program.

NOTE: The date and time of the system clock is set by the system administrator through HP-UX commands. If you are transferring programs from an HP 260 environment and they contain the SET DATE TO or SET TIME TO statements, you will receive Error 302 ( date and time has already been set).
