Summary

Function: integer llGetUnixTime( );

Returns an integer that is the number of seconds elapsed since 00:00 hours, Jan 1, 1970 UTC from the system clock.

Examples

<lsl> // Reset tracker integer BOOT_TIME; default {

   state_entry()
   {
       BOOT_TIME = llGetUnixTime(); 
       llSetTimerEvent(0.1);
   }
   
   timer()
   {
       llSetText((string)(llGetUnixTime() - BOOT_TIME) + " Seconds since boot.\n\n ", <1,0,0>, 1.0);
       llSetTimerEvent(1);
   }

}

</lsl>
