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.  Otherwise, (time_t)-1 is returned and errno is set to
     indicate the error.
