#70 closed defect (wontfix)

accessing the system time

Reported by: alexshinn Owned by: alexshinn
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: WG1 - Core Keywords:


Short of a full time and date library, a single procedure


returning the epoch time in seconds, possibly as a real
number, would be useful and is sufficient to implement
a full library (though access to the host system's
timezone would be desirable in that case).

Note for systems with no clock or concept of time,
this could be made optional. Alternately, it could
simply be a counter, sufficient to show relative
ordering of events but not exact durations.

Which epoch was left unspecified in the winning
