Time Stamp Feature request

Issue #396 new
Former user created an issue

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 396

Not a problem, only a request for a new feature implementing a function to return the
current time & date in order to time stamp my history.  It makes it possible, then,
to use speedcrunch as a type of task tracker, or a way to time correlate calculations
and notes with things I am doing in the laboratory.

Example:
timeformat(%YY-%MM-%dd, %h:%m:%s)  //only set this once, or maybe include as a gui
option //
tt  //timestamp command

What is the expected output?
2011-12-16, 10:35:21

Of course, the time format string could take directives for 24-hour clock, time zone,
UTC, AM/PM, etc.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
"whatever is most current version" on Debian GNU/Linux 6.0, also Sid and Linux Mint
0.10.1 on MS Windows 7


Please provide any additional information below.
Maybe to take it further, the ability to perform time functions directly:  
10:24:11 + 3:10
13:34:11  //or 1:34:11 PM depending on the master time format settings
Currently the : symbol is treated as a comment delimiter

    Not sure about the output like "2011-12-16, 10:35:21". I think it would be more useful (and easier) to output an Unix Epoch timestamp, e.g. 1470077733
