PX_timestamp2string(3) Convert paradox timestamp into formatted string

SYNOPSIS

#include <paradox.h>

char * PX_timestamp2string(pxdoc_t *pxdoc, double timestamp, const char *format)

DESCRIPTION

Creates a string representation of a paradox timestamp as specified in the parameter format. The timestamp must be either retrieved with PX_get_data_double(3) after calling PX_get_record(3) or by simply using the double value in the pxval_t struct as returned by PX_retrieve_record(3). A timestamp contains both time and date information. The format string contains chars which stand for certain values of the date/time. The following table lists all available characters with a meaning. All other characters are being copied unmodified to the output string. If a special character shall not be interpreted it must be preceded with a backslash.
