Post current time in milliseconds with "date"?


How can you display current time using options on date?

The "%N" format string gives you the fractional part in nanoseconds (9 digits, with leading zeros as appropriate). Truncating that to milliseconds is trivial. Rounding to milliseconds is a bit more interesting, but still not difficult.
