Assigns the current date and time to a parameter.
void lr_save_datetime( const char *format, int offset, const char *name );
|Example: lr_save_datetime||String and Parameter Functions|
|format||The format of the retrieved date/time information.|
|offset||Offset from the current date and time, using the constants: DATE_NOW, TIME_NOW, ONE_DAY, ONE_HOUR, ONE_MIN. For example, TIME_NOW + ONE_HOUR|
|name||The name of the parameter to store the date/time information.|
The lr_save_datetime function saves the current date and time, or the date and time with the specified offset into a parameter. The resulting string will be truncated once it reaches MAX_DATETIME_LEN characters.
The format can be a format defined in an included header file, such as DATE_FM, which is defined in lrun.h. You can use the Datetime Format Codes to build a format with any combination of strings and codes. For example, depending on the definitions in your computer's locale, "The current month is %b" would return The current month is JAN. "%d%b%y" would return 29JAN97.
No value is returned.
You cannot use standard parameterization for any arguments in this function.
