    Does anyone have a clever or simple way to add one minute to a date/time stamp? I started writing a script to do this, but quickly realized that you’d have to check the minutes, hours, days, months, and years! (Ex. 20091231235959).

      Answered my own question. The “clock scan” command is powerful!!

      Code:

      set time “20091231 235959”
      set format “%Y%m%d%H%M%S”
      set time [clock format [clock scan “+1 minute” -base [clock scan $time]] -format $format]

      Those are the best answers, aren’t they?  😉

      Just remember to include the current timezone in your $time. It could prevent problems when switching from/to Daylight Saving Time. Very slim chance at that happening, but…

      You could always add the flag -gmt 1 and do all of your time in GMT  🙂

      You are correct the clock command is very powerful.  It will do things like yesterday, 3 days ago, next week, ecen fortnight,
