time command

With no argument, print a summary of time used by this C shell and its children. 

With an optional command , execute command and print a summary of the time it uses. 

As of this writing, the time built-in command does NOT compute the last 6 fields of output, rendering the output to erroneously report the value “0” for these fields.

example %time ls -R
9.0u 11.0s 3:32 10% 0+0k 0+0io 0pf+0w

(See below the “Environment Variables and Predefined Shell Variables” sub-section on the time variable.)
