Reference: Daytime protocol timestamp format

Advanced Time Synchronizer supports the format templates for Daytime protocol timestamp strings.

When Advanced Time Synchronizer connects a time server and received Daytime protocol timestamp string, it parses it by using following format specifiers:

space or underscore
Space
%x,%w
Any text
%d
Day in month
%m
Month number 1..12
%M
Month text (three letter abbreviation or full)
%y
Year number
%h
Hour
%n
Minutes
%s
Seconds
%a
AM/PM
%z
Time zone abbreviation
%z=ABB or %z=±hh:mm
Set time zone ignoring source string
%z!ABB or %z!±hh:mm
Read time zone from source string but set time zone from template
%e
A health digit that indicates the health of the server. If e=0, the server is healthy, otherwise the received timestamp will be rejected as incorrect.
%j
MJD is the Modified Julian Date. The MJD is the last five digits of the Julian Date, which is simply a count of the number of days since January 1, 4713 B.C.
%v
msADV displays the number of milliseconds that NIST advances the time code to partially compensate for network delays. The advance is currently set to 50.0 milliseconds.

Examples:

"15.02.04 13:13:04 CST"
->
"%d.%m.%y %h:%n:%s %z"
(date, time and time zone)
"15 Feb 04 13:13:04"
->
"%d %M %y %z=EST %h:%n:%s"
(date and time in EST time zone)
"13:13:04 EDT 02/15/04"
->
"%h:%n:%s %z!EDT %m/%d/%y"
(date and time, but change time zone to EDT)
"02/15/04 1:13:04 PM UTC"
->
"%m/%d/%y %h:%n:%s %a %z"
(date and time with AM/PM specification)
"53050 04-02-15 10:23:32 00 0 0 909.7 UTC(NIST) *"
->
"%j_%y-%m-%d_%h:%n:%s_%x_%x_%e_%v_%z(NIST) *"
NIST

When Advanced Time Synchronizer functioning as a local time server it sends Daytime protocol timestamp strings encoding them by using following format specifiers:

space or underscore
Space
%D
Day in month
%d
Day in month (2-digit always)
%w
Weekday text (three letter abbreviation)
%M
Month text (three letter abbreviation)
%m
Month number 1..12
%Y
Full year number
%y
Two digit year number
%H
Hour
%h
Hour (2-digit always)
%N
Minutes
%n
Minutes (2-digit always)
%S
Seconds
%s
Seconds (2-digit always)
%A
AM/PM
%a
am/pm
%z
Add time zone abbreviation
%z=ABB or %z=±hh:mm
Use time in specified time zone, but not add abbreviation
%z!ABB or %z!±hh:mm
Use time in specified time zone and add its abbreviation
%e
A health digit that indicates the health of the server. If e=0, the server is healthy, otherwise the received timestamp will be rejected as incorrect.
%j
MJD is the Modified Julian Date. The MJD is the last five digits of the Julian Date, which is simply a count of the number of days since January 1, 4713 B.C.
%v
msADV displays the number of milliseconds that NIST advances the time code to partially compensate for network delays. The advance is currently set to 50.0 milliseconds.
%C
Day in year
%c
Day in year (3-digit always)

Examples:

"%d.%m.%y %h:%n:%s %z"
->
"15.02.04 13:13:04 UTC"
(date, time and time zone)
"%d %M %y %z=EST %h:%n:%s"
->
"15 Feb 04 13:13:04"
(date and time in EST time zone)
"%m/%d/%y %h:%n:%s %A %z"
->
"02/15/04 1:13:04 PM UTC"
(date and time with AM/PM specification)
"%j_%y-%m-%d_%h:%n:%s_0_0_%e_%v_%z(NIST) *"
->
"53050 04-02-15 10:23:32 0 0 0 50.0 UTC(NIST) *"
NIST
"%w,_%M_%d,_%y_%h:%n:%s%a-%z!PDT"
->
"Sun, Feb 15, 04 1:02:11am-PDT"
(date and time with AM/PM specification in PDT time zone)
