Real Time Clock

Epoch is 1.1.1970 (Unix time stamp). But valid dates are from 1.1.2000 to 31.12.2099 because of the STM32WB RTC peripheral.

time@          (  -- u )      Returns the unix time stamp. 
time!          ( u --  )      Sets the real time clock.
.time          ( -- )         Prints the current date and time (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS ISO 8601).

date                          Prints date unix style Mon Jan  1 01:57:52 2000

wait-alarm     ( -- )         Wait for an alarm
alarm!         (h m s -- )    Sets the alarm, invalid parameters e.g. -1 mask the parameter

How to set the current date and time?

Copy the current time stamp from a Unix machine (GNU/Linux box) or from https://www.unixtimestamp.com/:

$ date +%s
1602430522

Paste the time stamp in the Mecrisp-Cube console:

 ok.
1602430522 time![RET]  ok.
.time[RET] 2020-10-11T15:35:27 ok.
date[RET] 
Sun Oct 11 15:36:02 2020

Set Alarms

Wake me at 06:00

If you want an alarm every second:

-1 -1 -1 alarm![RET]  ok.

for every minute:

-1 -1 0 alarm![RET]  ok.

Stop the alarms:

0 0 0 alarm![RET]  ok.
