|EAPI double ecore_time_get||(||void||)|
Retrieves the current system time as a floating point value in seconds.
This uses a monotonic clock and thus never goes back in time while machine is live (even if user changes time or timezone changes, however it may be reset whenever the machine is restarted).

|EAPI double ecore_time_unix_get||(||void||)|
|EAPI double ecore_loop_time_get||(||void||)|
Retrieves the time at which the last loop stopped waiting for timeouts or events.
This gets the time that the main loop ceased waiting for timouts and/or events to come in or for signals or any other interrupt source. This should be considered a reference point for all time based activity that should calculate its timepoint from the return of ecore_loop_time_get(). Use this UNLESS you absolutely must get the current actual timepoint - then use ecore_time_get(). Note that this time is meant to be used as relative to other times obtained on this run. If you need absolute time references, use ecore_time_unix_get() instead.
