FDATE(3F)                                                            FDATE(3F)



NAME
       fdate - return date and time in an ASCII string

SYNOPSIS
       subroutine fdate (string)
       character*(*) string

       character*(*) function fdate()

DESCRIPTION
       Fdate returns the current date and time as a 24 character string in the
       format described under ctime(3).  Neither 'newline' nor  NULL  will  be
       included.

       Fdate can be called either as a function or as a subroutine.  If called
       as a function, the calling routine must define its type and length. For
       example:

            character*24   fdate
            external       fdate

            write(*,*) fdate()
