Strftime and 10th of a second?

Hi all,

I’m using JRuby on Rails 2.x

One of the requirements of my project is to create a recordings filename
that includes date and time. This is what I’ve got so far.

now = Time.new
@record_filename = “”
@record_filename += now.strftime("%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S")
@record_filename += “.wav”

Because some of these files can be create at the same time, I need to
include a unit that is smaller than seconds, like a 10th of a seconds.

I searched, but it seems that this not possible in strftime().
Is that correct? If so, any idea how to solve this?
Counting is not an option.

Thanks, Birgit

Just do it yourself: x.strftime(…) + x.usec.to_s or something along
those lines.
