NAME
       times  -  shell  built-in function to report time usages of the current
       shell

SYNOPSIS
   sh
       times

   ksh
       times

DESCRIPTION
   sh
       Print the accumulated user and system times for processes run from  the
       shell.

   ksh
       Print  the accumulated user and system times for the shell and for pro-
       cesses run from the shell.

       On this man page, ksh(1) commands that are preceded by  one  or  two  *
       (asterisks) are treated specially in the following ways:

       1.  Variable  assignment  lists  preceding the command remain in effect
           when the command completes.


       2.  I/O redirections are processed after variable assignments.


       3.  Errors cause a script that contains them to abort.


       4.  Words, following a command preceded by ** that are in the format of
           a  variable assignment, are expanded with the same rules as a vari-
           able assignment. This means that tilde  substitution  is  performed
           after  the  =  sign and word splitting and file name generation are
           not performed.
