Thanks you very much.  Here is what I will do:

CURTIME=`perl -e 'print(time())'`

Perhaps I will just rewrite the whole program in PERL.

Thank you.

Actually, check out the time() function.  It returns the seconds since
the epoch (for whatever is considered the epoch on your platform).
'perldoc -f time' at a command prompt should give you the necessary
info, or check your local copy of the Camel.

requires the  time value to do calculation. I was trying to get the
epoch time (seconds  since January 1, 1970) using the Unix "date '+%s'"
command. However, AIX  does not support "%s". So I am thinking about
writing my own C program  just to output this seconds value, then I
thought about using "localtime" in  PERL. What do you recommend?
