All Enapter Virtual UCMs synchronize the time either with the local Enapter Gateway it runs on. Normally you could expect less than a second difference with the global time.
-- @param format string
-- @param time number
-- @return string|table
function os.date(format, time) end
Returns a string or a table containing date and time, formatted according
to the given string
time argument is present, this is the time to be formatted (see
os.time function for a description of this value). Otherwise,
date formats the current time.
format starts with
!, then the date is formatted in Coordinated
Universal Time. After this optional character, if
format is the string
date returns a table with the following fields:
sec(0-61), due to leap seconds
wday(weekday, 1–7, Sunday is 1)
yday(day of the year, 1–366)
isdst(daylight saving flag, a boolean). This last field may be absent if the information is not available.
format is not
date returns the date as a string,
formatted according to the same rules as the ISO C function
When called without arguments,
date returns a reasonable date and time
representation that depends on the host system and on the current locale.
os.date() is equivalent to
-- @param table table Table in the same format as returned by os.date
-- @return number
function os.time(table) end
Returns the current time when called without arguments, or a time
representing the date and time specified by the given table. This table
must have fields
day, and may have fields
(default is 12),
min (default is 0),
sec (default is 0), and
(default is nil). Other fields are ignored. For a description of these
fields, see the
When the function is called, the values in these fields do not need to be
inside their valid ranges. For instance, if
sec is -10, it means 10 seconds
before the time specified by the other fields; if
hour is 1000, it means
1000 hours after the time specified by the other fields.
The returned value is a number of seconds since UNIX epoch start time (UNIX timestamp).
When called with a table,
os.time also normalizes all the fields
documented in the
os.date function, so that they represent the same time
as before the call but with values inside their valid ranges.
