Function

GLibget_real_time

Declaration [src]

gint64
g_get_real_time (
  void
)

Description [src]

Queries the system wall-clock time.

This call is functionally equivalent to g_get_current_time() except that the return value is often more convenient than dealing with a GTimeVal.

You should only use this call if you are actually interested in the real wall-clock time. g_get_monotonic_time() is probably more useful for measuring intervals.

Available since:2.28

Return value

Returns: gint64
 

The number of microseconds since January 1, 1970 UTC.
