Time bomb a HIL executable

Time bomb a HIL executable

Time bomb a HIL executable

I would like a HIL (dSPACE) executable to expire after a certain date.  In a "normal" C environment I'd simply call standard C functions to test the current date against the drop-dead date and abort() if it's later.

Alas the HIL environment doesn't support a lot of the standard C library, notably the time/clock functions.

Anybody else been in this boat before?  Or can direct me to a better forum to post the question?

Why would you want to do that?
If someone is paying for your work, do they know about it?

RE: Time bomb a HIL executable

It's a free evaluation.  Like most other evaluations, it should have a limited lifespan.

And yes, the potential customer knows about it.  It was a condition of the evaluation.
