I have a function that adds all previous lines in the output buffer to a txt file, however I am having problems getting it to show the date/time.

Here is the function.

function starLog_prev ()
 local line, total_lines
 total_lines = GetLinesInBufferCount ()
 for line = 1, total_lines do
  AppendToNotepad ("Star_Log_Test", GetLineInfo (line, 9) .. ": " .. GetLineInfo (line, 1))
  AppendToNotepad ("Star_Log_Test", "\r\n")
 end -- for
end -- function starLog_prev

According to the documentation, it says 9 is the date/time line arrived.

However the results are like this.

Maybe you want to try something like this instead

AppendToNotepad ("Star_Log_Test", os.date("%c", GetLineInfo(line,9)) .. ": " .. GetLineInfo (line, 1))
