TIME(1)                                                   TIME(1)

     NAME
          time - time command execution

     SYNOPSIS
          time command [ arg ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Time executes the command with the given arguments, and
          reports on standard error the command's load time, real time
          for execution, and the total, in seconds.  The load time is
          just the time for time itself to load command; loads done
          later by the command are included in the real time.  To time
          a pipeline, use the -c option to sh(1):

               time sh -c 'ps | grep Sh'

     BUGS
          There is no way to measure CPU time (real or virtual) used
          by a command.
