Configuration parameters


The NOW function pushes onto the stack the current LONG timestamp expressed in the platform time unit. This timestamp is the number of platform time unit elapsed since 00:00:00 on 1 January 1970 UTC minus the number of leap seconds, see Unix time.

This function is mostly linear with time but this property is violated when the OS resynchronises its clock (ie consecutive calls to NOW may 'jump' or 'go backward').
