Question asked by detlef.baranski on Jul 15, 2004
Does not Vee 7 have all you want ?
okay, some folks may not want to upgrade...perhaps.
Give it a try...look for the evaluation version then.

Betreff: [vrf] timestamp to string format

I'd like to take the data returned from a timestamp /now() variable and pass
it as a string to matlab for use in the title of a figure.

It's easy enough to unbuild the year month day info, but I was wondering how
to get the hms data.. ahh  (thinks a little longer) I can rebuild the dmy to
a timestamp no format, then subtract, then a little bit of  manipulation
and so on..

OK I can  throw something together now, but out of interest anyone got
something to do this already that they would care to pass on... I seem to
have a vague recollection that it may have come up here previously.
