Examples

<lsl> default {

   state_entry()
   {
       llResetTime();
   }
   touch_start(integer num_touch)
   {
       float time = llGetTime(); //Instead getting, and then resetting the time, we could use llGetAndReset() to accomplish the same thing.
       llResetTime();
       llSay(0,(string)time + " seconds have elapsed since the last touch." );
   }

}

</lsl>

Notes

Script time does not measure time dilation. To measure elapsed calendar time, call llGetTimestamp instead, since time dilation and resets often make dilated time intervals differ from calendar time intervals.
