What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Stack Overflow has a tag which is used with several related meanings:

  • Obtaining the current time, or both date and time (e.g. with the time function in C)
  • Formatting or parsing the time of day
  • Measuring the running time of a program (including the time utility on unix-like systems)

This tag was included in http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/128315/the-great-stack-overflow-tag-question-cleanup-of-2012 with reservations

not sure if this is a good tag, the wiki is a copy/paste from Wikipedia and it can't stand on its own

so we need to discuss it. (And please remove it from the list in the meantime, so that zealous users don't start removing it willy-nilly.)

You should also add the date tag to that. –  Bryan Dunsmore Jun 3 '12 at 19:10
@dunsmoreb date seems less broad: it's always about operations on dates, one way or another. –  Gilles Jun 3 '12 at 19:28
