Description

The TIME() function returns the current system time as a character string in the format HH:MM:SS. The TIME() function always returns the time in 24 hour format, and is not affected by the SET HOURS TO [12/24] command. The optional numeric expression <expN> must result in a non-zero value. The TIME() function will always return hundredths of seconds as 00.

Example

? time()
17:47:24
? time(1)
17:47:31.00
