#### Search: #### Time

``` Function: time (%o1, %o2, %o3, ...)
Returns a list of the times, in seconds, taken to compute the
output lines `%o1`, `%o2`, `%o3`, .... The time returned is
Maximas estimate of the internal computation time, not the
elapsed time. `time` can only be applied to output line variables;
for any other variables, `time` returns `unknown`.```

Set `showtime: true` to make Maxima print out the computation time and elapsed time with each output line.

There are also some inexact matches for `time`. Try `?? time` to see them.

```(%o1)                                true
(%i2) ```
