6.10.8 Date And Time Routines

procedure GetTimeStamp (var t: TimeStamp);
function Date (t: TimeStamp): packed array [1 .. DateLength] of Char;
function Time (t: TimeStamp): packed array [1 .. TimeLength] of Char;

DateLength and TimeLength are implementation dependent constants.

GetTimeStamp (t) fills the record t with values. If they are valid, the Boolean flags are set to True.

TimeStamp is a predefined type in the Extended Pascal standard. It may be extended in an implementation, and is indeed extended in GPC. For the full definition of TimeStamp, see TimeStamp.
