How To Get The Current Epoch Time (Unix Timestamp)

 

Perltime
PHPtime()
RubyTime.now (or Time.new). To display the epoch: Time.now.to_i
Pythonimport time first, then int(time.time())
Javalong epoch = System.currentTimeMillis()/1000;
Microsoft .NET C#epoch = (DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime().Ticks - 621355968000000000) / 10000000;
VBScript/ASPDateDiff("s", "01/01/1970 00:00:00", Now())
Erlangcalendar:datetime_to_gregorian_seconds(calendar:now_to_universal_time( now()))-719528*24*3600.
OR
element(1, now()) * 10000 + element(2, now()).
MySQLSELECT unix_timestamp(now())
PostgreSQLSELECT extract(epoch FROM now());
Oracle PL/SQLSELECT (SYSDATE - TO_DATE('01-01-1970 00:00:00', 'DD-MM-YYYY HH24:MI:SS')) *
24 * 60 * 60 FROM DUAL
SQL ServerSELECT DATEDIFF(s, '1970-01-01 00:00:00', GETUTCDATE())
JavaScriptMath.round(new Date().getTime()/1000.0) getTime() returns time in milliseconds.
