time

When "time" command is typed at the terminal, the following output is given.  

real  0m, 000s
user 0m, 000s
sys   0m, 000s

Is there some setting so correct time will be given?

I think you are looking for `date` instead of time.

See man time and man data

Thanks MOE.

I am more curious as too [why] such an output should occur other than obtaining the actual time.   Thanks for pointing out the [man] connection.

Thanks  bigpaws.  I get the jest of it.   "time - Time" --> The execution of a script  [ Tcl ]. 

real   0m0.017s
user   0m0.001s
sys   0m0.005s
