ASKTIME: Request current date and time of day.

ASKTIME updates the date (EIBDATE) and CICS time-of-day clock (EIBTIME) fields in the EIB. These two fields initially contain the date and time when the task started.

For example, after the following command runs:

EXEC CICS ASKTIME ABSTIME(utime)

utime contains a value similar in format to 002837962864820.


EIBTIME:

Contains the time at which the task is started (this field is updated by the ASKTIME command). The time is in packed decimal form (0HHMMSS+), and can contain a value in the range 0000000+ to 0240000+. Both 0000000+ and 0240000+ are valid.
