contructing a date:time

| What is the simplest way to construct an expression to represent

| after that instant in time?

Most, if not all, file selection commands and functions accept date and
time ranges. As described in HELP topic "dateranges.htm", the date range
syntax below selects files created at or after 1:15 PM local time today:
/[[email protected]:15p]
The syntax below selects files created before that epoch:
/![[email protected]:15p]
Fully described in HELP!

| Thanks. How about a way of telling if now is after 1PM today?

If you mean to test whether or not the current time of day is after 1:00 PM
(a test independent of anything in the file system), do this:

if %@time[%_time] GT %@time[1:00 PM] echo It is already past 1 PM!

Something strange here: why did I reveive my message to the forum, sent and received here originally 20-09-2010, again today (dated 26-09-2010), with Rex Conn's signature ?

Same here. Nothing similar in any other forum. BTW, Klaus, when you use
an all-numeric date, esp. for the first twelve days of a month, it ought to
be ISO style for easy mental parsing anywhere, JP fora have contributors on
all continents with varying local date formats.
