I have this code:


moniter = peripheral.wrap("back")
moniter.setTextScale(3)
while true do
sleep(0.75)
moniter.setCursorPos(1,1)
moniter.clear()
moniter.write(textutils.formatTime(os.time().true))
end
moniter.restore()


I know this code did work, i saw it on a Youtube video (it was uploaded in 2013) and i was wondering why it doesnt work anymore, or did i make a typo?

What happens when you run it?



I'd assume it doesn't work because of this:
(Should throw an 'attempt to index number' I believe)
moniter.write(textutils.formatTime(os.time().true))
(The arguments in question here are 'os.time()' and 'true')

Instead of a period (.), you need to use a comma (,) to separate the arguments, like this:
moniter.write(textutils.formatTime(os.time(),true))

Thanks HPWebcamAble that fixed everything. I didnt notice the comma!

I fixed the first post so the code was in the code format, just learnt how to do it.
