This item was introduced in E-Prime 2.0 (22.214.171.124).
This feature allows for accessing the current system time in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) format via the following global script functions:
The functions return their values as a Date unless suffixed by '$', in which case, they return their values as a String.
' Example uses of the UTC functions for copy and paste into your script
Dim theNow As Date
theNow = NowUtc
NOTE: E-Prime 2.0 can use MsgBox NowUtc instead of Display.MsgBox (see INFO: Display.MsgBox usage in E-Prime 3.0 ).
For more information view the E-Prime Command Reference for specifics involving E-Basic (https://pstnet.com/ecr).
