TIMES(1) User Commands TIMES(1)


NAME

shell

SYNOPSIS


sh
times


ksh
times


DESCRIPTION


sh
Print the accumulated user and system times for processes run from the
shell.

ksh
Print the accumulated user and system times for the shell and for
processes run from the shell.


On this man page, ksh(1) commands that are preceded by one or two *
(asterisks) are treated specially in the following ways:

1. Variable assignment lists preceding the command remain in
effect when the command completes.

2. I/O redirections are processed after variable assignments.

3. Errors cause a script that contains them to abort.

4. Words, following a command preceded by ** that are in the
format of a variable assignment, are expanded with the same
rules as a variable assignment. This means that tilde
substitution is performed after the = sign and word splitting
and file name generation are not performed.
