For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
finding the timestamp

Posted by priyadharshini (priyadharshini), 12 May 2008

      using tcl I need to create text file to store the output of a script. The text file's name should be the timestamp value of when the script has started to run.
Is there any command to get the timestamp value in tcl?

Thank you,

set timestamp [timestamp -format "%m-%d-%Y:%H:%M:%S"]
this shall give you the time stamp, then set the scriptname with this time name and create where ever you want.
