%a
Abbreviated weekday name

%A

%b
Abbreviated month name

%B

%c
Date and time representation appropriate for locale

%d
Day of month as decimal number (01 – 31)

%H
Hour in 24-hour format (00 – 23)

%I
Hour in 12-hour format (01 – 12)

%j
Day of year as decimal number (001 – 366)

%m
Month as decimal number (01 – 12)

%M
Minute as decimal number (00 – 59)

%p
Current locale's A.M./P.M. indicator for 12-hour clock

%S
Second as decimal number (00 – 59)

%U
Week of year as decimal number, with Sunday as first day of week (00 – 53)

%w

%W

%x

%X

%y

%Y

%z, %Z

id#=2974886458

%%

An example of the "cc2_timedate.ini" file would be:


[time00]
id=1271088632
format="%a %d %b %Y"

[time01]
id=3124516610
format="%I:%M:%S %p"


The current date, as a decimal number, is now included in the latest release of CC2. CC2 now has a countdown function. Nice!
