The getDtStr( command returns the current date of the clock on the TI-84+/SE/CE calculators as a string based on the date format that is specified. There are three different date formats available: 1 (M/D/Y), 2 (D/M/Y), or 3 (Y/M/D). You can store this value to a string variable for later use, or manipulate it the same way you do with other strings. Of course, this command only works if the date format has actually been set, so you should use the setDtFmt( command before using it.
