   timefpc: test time on the Free Pascal (fpc) compiler

synopsis
   timefpc(output: out)

   output: show the current time.

description

   The time function returned by various computers is different.  Show the
   time function to figure out how to modify the getdatetime procedure.

   This program contains routines for obtaining the date and time
   for Delila programs compiled with the fpc compiler.

   They can be easily transferred to other programs using the module
   program.  The script upgrademodule will do this.

   NOTE:  For now the file extpas.pp must be compiled by fpc this way:

       fpc -ap extpas.pp

   The resulting extpas.o and extpas.ppu must be in the same
   directory as the program to be compiled.

   Programs can then be compiled with
       fpc -Miso -ap -Faextpas PROGRAM.p

   The fpcc script does all these steps.

examples

   Times should look like this:

   The module program, used to transfer the modules is: module.p

   The FPC compiler is described at:

   http://www.freepascal.org/

   The FPC time routines are described in

   http://www.freepascal.org/docs-html/rtl/sysutils/datetimeroutines.html

   see the section: TIME HANDLING ROUTINES

   To compile Delila programs on the FPC compiler, use the fpcc script.

    PROBABLY THIS IS IRRELEVANT:
    Until fpcc gets smarter, for this program it is necessary to use the -time
   flag:
      fpcc timefpc.p -time

   timesun.p
