clock

Current time

t = clock

  • It returns a six-element numeric vector, representing the current time in the format [Year Month Day Hour Minute Second].
  • Hour is always in 24h format, independent of the device's settings.

[t, d] = clock

  • The output t has the same value as given by t = clock.
  • d is a binary number, representing whether or not it is during Daylight Saving Time (DST).

Example 1: Suppose the current time is December 6, 2018, 19:54:43.11.
