str Strftime(int timestamp, str format[, int utc])



  • timestamp: the timestamp to format (use SystemTime to get the current time])
  • format: a string describing how the string is formatted. It may contain any supported conversion specifiers, which are replaced as appropriate.
  • utc: If true, then the timestamp will be localized using the UTC timezone, local timezone otherwise.

Return value

A human-readable string from the given timestamp, formatted using the format parameter.

Note that due to ACS's limitations, timestamps are suspectible to the year 2038 problem.


This prints something like June 25 2022 to the screen.
