var := TSET

Start or restart the STx timer. The TSET command will return a string of the format yyyy.mm.dd hh.mm.ss, indicating the start date and time of the timer, e.g. 1969.07.21 03.56.00.

The STx timer is implemented via the standard operating system time functions. The timer gets incremented every second. For more accurate timers use an STx value item.
