Class std.datetime.systime.Clock

Effectively a namespace to make it clear that the methods it contains are getting the time from the system clock. It cannot be instantiated.

class Clock ;


currStdTime[get] longReturns the number of hnsecs since midnight, January 1st, 1 A.D. for the current time.


currTime (tz) Returns the current time in the given time zone.
factory (classname) Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.
opCmp (o) Compare with another Object obj.
opEquals (o) Test whether this is equal to o. The default implementation only compares by identity (using the is operator). Generally, overrides for opEquals should attempt to compare objects by their contents.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.


Get the current time as a SysTime

import std.datetime.timezone : LocalTime;
SysTime today = Clock.currTime();
assert(today.timezone is LocalTime());
