$ticks

Extracts "ticks" information from a standard time value.

Syntax

$ticks(time)

Parameters

time

an 8-digit number, or an expression that evaluates to an 8-digit number, expressing valid time in the form HHMMSSTT

Return Value

Number.

Comments

The system variable $Time is often used for time.

With operating systems whose clocks do not support hundredths of a second, $ticks($Time) evaluates to 0, because the last two digits of $Time are always zeros.

Example

$ticks($Time)

Evaluates to 99 when $Time has the value 23595999.
