Sync System Time With NIST

Recommended Posts


Here's a little snippet to quickly sync your system clock with that of NIST.

 Sync Time

#ce --------------


Func _get_time()
 $central = "http://nist.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Central/d/-6"
 $eastern = "http://nist.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Eastern/d/-5"
 $data = BinaryToString(InetRead($central))
 $regex = "\d{1,2}:\d{1,2}:\d{1,2}"
 $match = StringRegExp($data, $regex, 3)
 if not IsArray($match) Then return false
 Return $match[1]
EndFunc   ;==>_get_time

Func _set_time($time)
  if NOT $time Then Exit

 RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'time ' & $time, "", @SW_HIDE)
EndFunc   ;==>_set_time


Uhhh... why is the forum injecting BBCode into my post? Someone should get to work fixing that :S
