DOS Command to display time without prompting for New time

scmuser created the topic: DOS Command to display time without prompting for New time

I think most of us know the DOS command “time/T” which displays current system time without prompting for new time.

But If one needs more granular output, say in HH:MM:SS format, here is a way out, use “echo %TIME%” which expands to current time using same format as TIME command.

There are so many other things which can be echoed. For example, try any of the following variables:
%CD% – expands to the current directory string.

%DATE% – expands to current date using same format as DATE command.

%RANDOM% – expands to a random decimal number between 0 and 32767.

%ERRORLEVEL% – expands to the current ERRORLEVEL value

%CMDEXTVERSION% – expands to the current Command Processor Extensions version number.

%CMDCMDLINE% – expands to the original command line that invoked the Command Processor.

%PATH% – expands the current PATH variable.
