Filter on TODAY() - Simple Filter to obtain record for current date

How does one apply Lens or SQL filter to obtain records for curent date?
This does not work for example;
q = filter q by date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day') == TODAY();

It would be somethgn like this.... q = [SELECT ID, CreatedDate FROM Object__c WHERE CreatedDate = TODAY()];

You can also add any ther fields (Comma separated) to return via your query as well.

Does this help?

Thanks Alain, this is SAQL.  I do receive an error message 

Invalid date range: date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day') in ["current day"] using the following statement;
q = filter q by date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day')  in ["current day"];

date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day') in ["current day".."current day"] 

For an interval but it is not logical ("current day" is already an interval)

Unsupported type: UNKNOWN for arg1 (date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day')) of (date('CreatedDate_Year', 'CreatedDate_Month', 'CreatedDate_Day') == "current day")

Ok sorry, the last solution could be  in ["current day".."current day"] but it lacks this simple example in the documentation.

Good. When it works at last. ("current day" is already an interval like TODAY() in SOQL) and the simple example in ["current day".."current day"] is nowhere. The next time, I will test the solution myself before post it but it is more complicated with SAQL than with SOQL (curl and tokens) but the simple logic is not enough with these strange SAQL requests.

Good. Thanks and if your question is solved, you could close it (choosing an answer).
