CIGAL Reference Manual, Chapter 4 (Variables): secs

Secs -- Integer pseudo-variable with seconds portion of current time

usage: dest = secs

SECS is a number variable containing the seconds portion of the current time. This variable is read-only. Its value is set the moment it is read. SECS is set to the nearest hundredth of a second, with an accuracy dependent on the resolution of your computer's clock hardware.


    At 30.25 seconds after 5:25 pm on October 13th, 1992, the CIGAL command:
         ftype '%5/2f/%2d  %5:2f:%5.2f\n' day year-1900 hour secs
    would print as:
         10/13/92  17:25:30.25
