    Hi everybody,

    I want to know if there's any method to get the system date and convert it as a Number, or just getting the system date's year as a number.

    Thanks!!

    I implemented this through user defined functions - I found some suitable date-manipulation library and exposed selected functions to the CLIPS language.

    If you're running on unix, you can do the following:

    CLIPS> 
    (deffunction get-date ()
       (system "date > date.out")
       (open "date.out" date "r")
       (bind ?v (readline date))
       (close date)
       (explode$ ?v))
    CLIPS> (get-date)
