DOS Command to display time without prompting for New time
Posted February 20, 2009on:
I think most of us know the DOS command “time/T” which displays current system time without prompting for new time.
But If one needs more granular output, say in HH:MM:SS format, here is a way out, use “echo %TIME%” which expands to current time using same format as TIME command.
There are so many other things which can be echoed. For example, try any of the following variables:
%CD% – expands to the current directory string.
%DATE% – expands to current date using same format as DATE command.
%RANDOM% – expands to a random decimal number between 0 and 32767.
%ERRORLEVEL% – expands to the current ERRORLEVEL value
%CMDEXTVERSION% – expands to the current Command Processor Extensions version number.
%CMDCMDLINE% – expands to the original command line that invoked the Command Processor.
%PATH% – expands the current PATH variable.
