I am building out a schedule and need to create a loop where it prints out the time every 30 minutes between 7 am and 11 pm.  So, it would look something like the following:

7:00 a.m.
7:30 a.m.
8:00 a.m.
... (rest of the times here)
12:00 p.m.
12:30 p.m.
...(rest of the times here)
11:00 p.m.

How can I do this?  I have no idea where to start.

"where it prints out the time every 30 minutes between 7 am and 11 pm."

Prints?  Where?  To paper?  To a web page?  To the user's screen?    Be specific

javascript --

setInterval('showTime()', 1800000);

See here for a complete example of this function, that will do what you ask --
