time(3Tcl)							    time(3Tcl)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     time - Time the execution of a script

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     time script ?count?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This command will call the	Tcl interpreter	count times to evaluate	script
     (or once if count isn't specified).  It will then return a	string of the

	  503 microseconds per iteration

     which indicates the average amount	of time	required per iteration,	in
     microseconds.  Time is measured in	elapsed	time, not CPU time.

KEYWORDS    [Toc]    [Back]

     script, time
TIME(3F)							      TIME(3F)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     time, ctime, ltime, gmtime	- return system	time

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     external time
     integer function time()

     subroutine	time(chtime)
     character*8 chtime

     character*24 function ctime (stime)
     integer stime

     subroutine	ltime (stime, tarray)
     integer stime, tarray(9)

     subroutine	gmtime (stime, tarray)
     integer stime, tarray(9)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The external function time	returns	the time since 00:00:00	GMT, Jan. 1,
     1970, measured in seconds.	 This is the value of the UNIX system clock.

     The intrinsic subroutine time returns the time in the form	00:00:00 in
     the character string chtime. This is the default when time	is not
     declared to be an external	function.

     Ctime converts a system time to a 24 character ASCII string.  The format
     is	described under	ctime(3).  No 'newline'	or NULL	will be	included.

     Ltime and gmtime disect a UNIX time into month, day, etc.,	either for the
     local time	zone or	as GMT.

     The argument stime	contains the time in seconds since 00:00:00 GMT,
     January 1,	1970, returned by a previous call to time. The order and
     meaning of	each element returned in tarray	is described under ctime(3).
