Visual Micro and rtc_localtime symbol

Not open for further replies.


Well-known member
A question to all Visual Micro users (Stevech?)
I realize that VM (VS2017) does not pass a 'proper' value for 'rtc_localtime' definition to the linker.

e.g. Arduino sends '1515145932' but VM sends '32456683' more or less at the same time

obviously, the two timestamps are years apart

any similar experience and work around?

Where is the 'extra.time.local' symbol found in boards.txt evaluated? (In VM or in TD)?

Using T3.6 with TL1.39 on A1.8.3 and Win10

OK found earlier link

where it was said it should work.
Will follow-on there.
