Epoch

Epoch( num, unit )
Epoch( num, unit )
Epoch( num, unit )
Epoch( num, unit )
epoch(0, unit )
Epoch( num, unit )

Description

The Epoch function constructs a Timestamp relative to the Unix epoch (1970-01-01T00:00:00Z).

The num argument must be an integer value. The unit argument specifies the scale of num.

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

num

A mathematical integer value specifying the offset from epoch.

unit

Indicates the units used by num. Must be one of:

  • day, or days

  • half day, or half days

  • hour, or hours

  • minute, or minutes

  • second, or seconds

  • millisecond, or milliseconds

  • microsecond, or microseconds

  • nanosecond, or nanoseconds

Returns

A Timestamp which represents Unix epoch plus the offset represented by num and unit.

Examples

The following query adds 0 seconds to the Unix epoch (1970-01-01T00:00:00Z) and returns a timestamp:

curl https://db.fauna.com/ \
    -u fnAChGwBcAACAO70ziE0cfROosNJHdgBmJU1PgpL: \
    -d '{ "epoch": 0, "unit": "second" }'
client.Query(Epoch(0, "second"));
System.out.println(
       client.query(Epoch(Value(0), TimeUnit.SECOND))
       .get());
result, _ := client.Query(f.Epoch(0, f.TimeUnitSecond))

fmt.Println(result)
client.query(Epoch(0, "second"))
client.query(q.epoch(0, "second"))
client.query(q.Epoch(0, 'second'))
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
