in the post Date macros safe to use?, I started to dig into the possibilities. And within the UDF, yes, there is a possibility of 1 in a zillion, or just plain overwhelmed CPU that a time calculation be ugly wrong. So I propose to change all macro ( or most of 'em ), to "kernel32.dll, GetLocalTime". And since I thought of it, might as well get it done.

Please find attached the new beta for evaluation. Thank you very much. I'll now go get a beer. :)

 

oops: I now realized that I did not account for the leading zero on single digit numbers   ( after the beer ) Fixed.
Opps again: Forgot error checking. Done

ok, this one can be downloaded

For me, it was much less, around 1 in 13.6 million.

Good idea, arg, definitely needed to be fixed!

For anyone else who wants to test how long before the current production UDF glitches:

#include <Date.au3>

Local $sNow, $sThen, $iCalls=0, $htimer=TimerInit()

Do
   $sThen=$sNow
   $sNow=_NowCalc()
   $iCalls+=1
Until $sNow<$sThen

ConsoleWrite("Time jumped from "& $sNow &" to "& $sThen &@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("Run Time: "& Round(TimerDiff($htimer)/1000,3) &@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("Calls Made: "& $iCalls  &@CRLF)

*using the production UDF

Time jumped from 2021/05/20 21:01:00 to 2021/05/20 21:01:59
Run Time: 50.323
Calls Made: 13602962
