In 1977 I started learning Unix V6 as a Unix newbie. There were
no UCB bits I heard of till csh & job control & vi floated in to
my Uni. a few years on, maybe 1980 +/- a year or 2, I'd guess about
82. Can't remember when I heard of first complete BSD releases for
PDP/VAX but after the individual bits.
man 3 ctime
"The functions ctime(), gmtime() and localtime() all take
as an argument a time value representing the time in seconds
since the Epoch (00:00:00 UTC, January 1, 1970; see time(3))."
1970 in context quoted below ? No.
