TIME(3)                                                   TIME(3)

     NAME
          time, nsec - time in seconds and nanoseconds since epoch

     SYNOPSIS
          #include <u.h>
          #include <libc.h>

          long time(long *tp)

          vlong nsec(void)

     DESCRIPTION
          Both time and nsec return the time since the epoch 00:00:00
          GMT, Jan. 1, 1970.  The return value of the former is in
          seconds and the latter in nanoseconds.  For time, if tp is
          not zero then *tp is also set to the answer.

     DIAGNOSTICS
          These functions set errstr.

     BUGS
          To avoid name conflicts with the underlying system, time and
          nsec are preprocessor macros defined as p9time and p9nsec;
          see intro(3).
