I only just started programing in PocketC and only come from a limited background in HyperTalk if that means anything. I have the PocketC programing book for beginners and, believe me, it's a great tool. There are a few things i couldn't get out of it though. Is there there any function for getting the time or date. In HyperCard I was able to use the "get the seconds" function which would return how many seconds had passed since hyperCard was created. I know that sounds useless, but I could compare the seconds now with the seconds I got five minutes or five days ago and, with a little math, figure out about how much time had elasped. Thank you.

Here is some info from the docs:
<blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">
ticks() - the number of clock ticks since last reset
seconds() - the number of seconds since Jan 1, 1904 minus 2^31
time(int mode) - [mode 0] integer value (hour*100+minute) [mode 1] string value (as determined by system preferences) [mode 2] integer value (hour*10000+minute*100+sec)
date(int mode) - [mode 0] integer value (year*10000+month*100+day) [mode 1] short string value [mode 2] long string value (as determined by system preferences)
