Now my emacs mode line can display time like "Thu Jan 31 21:19", what if
I want to display second, too? just like: Thu Jan 31 21:19:23, and it
also can update per second?

To make the time and date appear in mode-line add to your user init file, ~/.emacs:


The time format is determined by two variables:


The former can be customised to be true or false (t or nil), the latter accepts a description as can be investigated from

        man strftime

which also provides nice "localised" versions (I have in GNU Emacs ``"%a, %d. %b %Y %R"ยดยด and outside a simple %Ec. You can test the look on the command line as in 'date '+<your format>'. There are also the customisable variables


of which I am not that sure whether they are needed.



Real Time, adj.:
Here and now, as opposed to fake time, which only occurs there and then.
