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.
