in a suite, I found it useful to specify the initial cycle point thusly,
initial cycle point = previous(T-00; T-15; T-30; T-45)
allowing a certain discretization with respect to time, of the suite being run.
is there an analogous statement for the nearest day, meaning, regardless to the wall time that the suite is run, that the initial cycle point would be say YYYYmmddT00?
the more general question:
is the “previous( …)” construct generalized for other units? (example above for hr)
I was not able to locate where I found the ‘previous(…)’ again, and made a few failed attempts (validation) at what might work.
