Oops!!! I forgot about Date() object in JavaScript. So this module is quite useless now. :)

This is a node.js module, writen in C++, that implements some missing time functions, such as getting timeval struct and getting unix time.

It was written by Peteris Krumins ( His blog is at -- good coders code, great reuse.

The module exports three functions:

* getUnixTime - returns seconds since 1970, Jan 1 (+/- timezone offset)
* getTimeval - returns timeval struct as object with .sec and .usec props
* getMilliseconds - returns milliseconds since 1970, Jan 1 (+/- tz offset)

See examples/ dir for working examples.

How to compile?

As usual,

node-waf configure build

The module will be called time.node. To use it, make sure it's in NODE_PATH.

Extra info

This library was written for my and SubStack's StackVM startup:

Have fun with time!
