Are you accessing the XML 3 parser using JScript, VBScript, C# or VB?

You can easily access the date from whatever language you are using to
invoke the parser.

Subject: [xsl] date function in XSLT or XPATH

Is there a function that retrieves the system date and time in XPATH
language or XSLT?  I need to convert an XML file into a flat file format
and I need to insert a timestamp that the file is created at the end.  I
can't seem to find any date or timestamp function.  Or if that's not
available, how to run a shell command and capture the output?  For example,
let's say I'm running the translation in Windows using Microsoft's XML
parser 3.0.  Is there a command to shell out to the DOS prompt and run the
'date' command to get current date and time.  Thanks.
