Return Value

Type: UInt32
The ASCII value of the current time separator (the character being used to separate hours, minutes and seconds in time strings).  Since the default time separator is a colon (:), GetTimeSep() returns 58 by default.  Note that you can use the Chr() function to convert this return value to a character.
Remarks
Examples
This example uses GetTimeSep() to display the current time separator:
X#
1? TIME()                // 08:31:53
2? GetTimeSep()            // 58
3? CHR(GetTimeSep())        // :
4SetTimeSep(ASC("*"))        // Set time separator to *
5? TIME()                // 08*31*56
6? GetTimeSep()            // 42
7? CHR(GetTimeSep())        // *
