Time last build took place in a tag

Time last build took place in a tag
I'd like to be able to show my editors the time the last build took place, just like I see when I do a build changed:

Building HTML Pages: Building Links Changed Since 2002-05-10 18:16:48

Is there a tag for this I can use to put into browser_info.html?

In the globals, you should see one called 'time'. At the moment it just prints the current time, but could easily be changed to print the day/month/year also. Then when you do a rebuild that global will be put into the templates Wink

Hope that helps

I guess this means I don't use <%time%> or <%date%> because it would show the time the page was loaded, and not the last build.

Links must store this time somewhere.... how else can it tell me what time the last build was when I go to build in the admin panel? Hmmmm

How about grabbing the last time that index.html (or whatever you use) was last modified? I'm not sure how easy it is to do in Perl, but its really easy in PHP Tongue

Easier in perl Tongue

You could just use $CFG->{last_build} Tongue

Hmmm, thats an idea, thanks.

I actually understand PHP (though still learning).... it was an easier transition from ASP and Visual Basic. I used to code in C++ over 10 years ago... and it seems to have similarities to Perl. I have been madly searching the internet for a decent (free) reference to what the syntax for things like $DB->blah->blah->fetchrow; This would improve my chances of writing my own globals instead of hasselling you guys every day!! Anyways I have diverted from the topic here.

Paul, do you know a way to grab dates from files (in Perl) and stick them in a tag? I could use this for my session files and tell when editors logged in then as well!!

Dumb question:

This:

Code:


sub {
# returns the time of the last build

my $lastbuild = $CFG->{last_build};

return $lastbuild;

}




Gives me this:

1021135155.83501

I guess date formatting is required?

This is from the time global:

Code:


my ($sec,$min,$hr) = localtime( time + ($Links::CFG->{date_offset} *3600));
return sprintf ("%02d:%02d:%02d", $hr, $min, $sec);
Somthing like with this mixed in it I bet...

Code:
sub {

Links::init_date();
return GT::Date::date_get ($CFG->{last_build} - ($CFG->{date_offset} * 3600), '%yyyy%-%mm%-%dd% %HH%:%MM%:%ss%');

}

Paul, don't ever think about leaving GT forum, will ya! Thanks.

For some reason it is three hours out (it shows 12:56 when the actual time was 9:56). I wonder if this is to do with localtime(...)? As my server is three hours ahead of local... but all my other times return the correct local time i.e. I already have date_offset at -3.



Or could it be that two negatives make a positive!! time - (-3) adds on threeWink

Hmm try:

Code:
sub {

Links::init_date();
return GT::Date::date_get ($CFG->{last_build} + ($CFG->{date_offset} * 3600), '%yyyy%-%mm%-%dd% %HH%:%MM%:%ss%');

}

I may be way off here but -3 * 3600 is -10800

The original code was minusing a minus which is the same as adding so by changing the - to a + it should work.

Blush Except 9 o'clock + (-3) gives 6 o'clock!!

I am thinking that the CFG->(lastbuild) is already converted.

This seems to work, thanks for your help Paul.

Code:


sub {
#returns the time of the last build


Links::init_date();
return GT::Date::date_get ($CFG->{last_build}, '%yyyy%-%mmm%-%dd% %HH%:%MM%:%ss%');

}
