POSIX time, if you need to deal with timestamps and the like. Most people won't need this module.
You can use
POSIXTime to obtain integer/word timestamps. For example:
import Data.Time import Data.Time.Clock.POSIX import Data.Int nanosSinceEpoch :: UTCTime -> Int64 nanosSinceEpoch = floor . (1e9 *) . nominalDiffTimeToSeconds . utcTimeToPOSIXSeconds main :: IO () main = do u <- getCurrentTime print $ nanosSinceEpoch u
86400 nominal seconds in every day
POSIX time is the nominal time since 1970-01-01 00:00 UTC
Get the current POSIX time from the system clock.
Get the current
UTCTime from the system clock.
