int = Today()

 

This macro function returns the current date as a 32-bit date.

 

Even though this function does not take any parameters, you must include the empty parentheses.

Note that this is the date when the Macro is executed. Do not confuse it with the system variable n_TokenDate.

 

This function is akin to FormatDate and FormatNumber, which are usually used for information used in production, but which is trimmed-out in the final diary. Most buyers of your diaries do not really care to see the date on which a diary was generated.
