Does anyone know how I can get the current date and time to be reported in the output of an rclass program that one has written? What is the function for reporting the current date and time at which the program was run on Stata?

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking for. If you are writing a program and want to display and/or return the time at which the program is executed, you can use the following:


program foo, rclass
return local datetime = "`c(current_date)' `c(current_time)'"
di as text return(datetime)
// rest of program
end


which produces


. foo
27 May 2006 21:24:26

. ret li

macros:
r(datetime) : "27 May 2006 21:24:26"
