What macros do I have to invoke to get the day of month, month, and year of the current date? I am a beginner in LaTeX.

  • I don't think "the system" has any way of estimating the quality of your question. Are you asking because you actually didn't know the macros, or are you asking because you think there should be a question-answer about this on TeX.sX? I'm just a bit confused about what you're up to here.

\the\day--\the\month--\the\year

In case you want a verbose month, I think it's done in LaTeX with

\ifcase\month\or
  January\or
  February\or
  March\or
  April\or
  May\or
  June\or
  July\or
  August\or
  September\or
  October\or
  November\or
  December\fi

(Not sure if I wrote them correctly)

Have a look at Koma-Script package scrdate. Documentation of Koma-Script, look for scrdate

Example Commands:

\DayName{year}{month}{day}
\ISODayName{ISO-date}
\ISOToday
\todaysname
\todaysnumber
