SirTune date processing

Jump to navigation Jump to search

SirTune uses dates in the following ways:

  • To examine the CPU clock (as returned by the STCK hardware instruction) to determine the current date, in case SirTune is under a rental or trial agreement
  • To display the current date, as returned by the TIME SVC, as page headers in various end-user displays
  • To display the date and time of various samples, as returned by the TIME SVC

For headers on pages or rows that occur on printed pages or displayed screens, Rocket Software Model 204 products generally use a full four-digit year format, although they may display dates with two-digit years in circumstances where the proper century can be inferred from the context.
