TIME(3)                   OpenBSD Programmer's Manual                  TIME(3)

     time - get time of day

     #include <time.h>

     time(time_t *tloc);

     The time() function returns the value of time in seconds since 0 hours, 0
     minutes, 0 seconds, January 1, 1970, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

     A copy of the time value may be saved to the area indicated by the point-
     er tloc. If tloc is a null pointer, no value is stored.

     Upon successful completion, time() returns the value of time.  Otherwise
     a value of (time_t)-1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to
     indicate the error.

     The following error codes may be set in errno:

     [EFAULT]      An argument address referenced invalid memory.

     gettimeofday(2),  ctime(3)

     A time() function appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
