My BASIC Quick Reference Guide

TIME$
Abbreviation: TI$

TYPE: String Function
FORMAT: TI$

Action: The TI$ timer looks and works like a real clock as long as your system is powered-on. The hardware interval timer (or jiffy clock) is read and used to update the value of TI$, which will give you a TIme $tring of six characters in hours, minutes and seconds. The TI$ timer can also be assigned an arbitrary starting point similar to the way you set your wristwatch. The value of TI$ is not accurate after tape I/O.

EXAMPLE of TI$ Function:

1 TI$ = "000000": FOR J=1 TO 10000: NEXT: PRINT TI$

000011
