8.11.9.101 FDate Intrinsic (subroutine)

 
CALL FDate(Date)

Date: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: unix.

Description:

Returns the current date (using the same format as CTIME()) in Date.

Equivalent to:

 
CALL CTIME(Date, TIME8())

Programs making use of this intrinsic might not be Year 10000 (Y10K) compliant. For example, the date might appear, to such programs, to wrap around (change from a larger value to a smaller one) as of the Year 10000.

See section 8.11.9.53 CTime Intrinsic (subroutine).

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine.

For information on other intrinsics with the same name: See section 8.11.9.102 FDate Intrinsic (function).
