 +======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 function|time]]()
 +into something a human being can understand. ​ It is a simpler version of
 +the $[[strftime]]() function.
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +current date/time string in human-readable form
 +
 +======Examples:​======
 +<​file>​
 +$stime($time()) ​            ​current time string
 +$stime(0) ​                  the dawn of time
 +</​file>​
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This function first appeared in ircII.
