This may seem like a dumb question, or maybe I just feel dumb asking it. I have spent hours trying to figure out how to retreive the current MM/DD/YYYY from the system output in that format.
strftime? time function? I'm spent! Any help would be great.....

Excellent! Very good material, I thank you.
Saved it to favorites and I'll take it from there.
The main reason I love to program is there is
always somrthing to try and figure out.
Again Thanx.
