time(2)                          System Calls                          time(2)



NAME
       time - get time

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <time.h>

       time_t time(time_t *tloc);

DESCRIPTION
       The time() function returns the value of time in seconds since 00:00:00
       UTC, January 1, 1970.

       If tloc is non-zero, the return value is also stored in the location to
       which  tloc  points. If tloc points to an illegal address, time() fails
       and its actions are undefined.

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