[Introduced in Sirius Mods 7.8]

StringToMilliseconds is an intrinsic function to convert a date/time string to milliseconds since 1900.


%milliseconds = string:StringToMilliseconds( format, [[CentSpan=] number]) Throws InvalidDateString

Syntax terms

%milliseconds The float variable to receive the computed time since 1900.
string The input date/time string.
format The format of the date/time string.
CentSpan See the CENTSPAN parameter. In Sirius Mods 7.9 and later this is a name allowed parameter. For versions prior to 7.9, it is a positional parameter.


This statement uses StringToMilliseconds and MillisecondsToString to convert a value in YYYYMMDDHHMISSXXX format to the Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS.XXX format:

printText {~='20110520173648965':stringToMilliseconds('YYYYMMDDHHMISSXXX'):millisecondsToString('Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS.XXX')}

The result is:

'20110520173648965':stringToMilliseconds('YYYYMMDDHHMISSXXX'):millisecondsToString('Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS.XXX') =May 20, 2011 17:36:48.965
