 NAME
      time - get time

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <&lt&lt&lt;time.h>&gt&gt&gt;

      time_t time(time_t *tloc);

 DESCRIPTION
      time() returns the value of time in seconds since the Epoch.

      If tloc is not a null pointer, the return value is also assigned to
      the object to which it points.

 RETURN VALUE
      Upon successful completion, time() returns the value of time.
      Otherwise, a value of (time_t)-1 is returned and errno is set to
      indicate the error.

 ERRORS
      [EFAULT]	     time() fails if tloc points to an illegal address.	 The
		     reliable detection of this error is implementation
		     dependent.
