    PR_Now

    « NSPR API Reference « Date_and_Time

    Returns the current time.

    Syntax

    #include <prtime.h>
    
    PRTime PR_Now(void);
    

    Parameters

    None.

    Returns

    The current time as a PRTime value.

    Description

    PR_Now() returns the current time as number of microseconds since the NSPR epoch, which is midnight (00:00:00) 1 January 1970 UTC.

    You cannot assume that the values returned by PR_Now() are monotonically increasing because the system clock of the computer may be reset. To obtain monotonically increasing time stamps suitable for measuring elapsed time, use PR_IntervalNow().
