# $EPIC: stime.txt,v 1.3 2006/08/29 18:22:56 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$stime(<integer representing UTC value>)

Technical:

  • If the argument is omitted, this function returns the empty string.
  • The function passes the integer value you provide to the ctime C Library Function and returns the result, after chopping off the trailing newline.
  • The return value of this function is supposed to be human readable.

Practical:

This function converts the return value of $time() into something a human being can understand. It is a simpler version of the $strftime() function.

Returns:

current date/time string in human-readable form

Examples:

$stime($time())             current time string
$stime(0)                   the dawn of time

History:

This function first appeared in ircII.
