Flux universe package (built-in)

The Flux universe package includes all functions that do not require a package import statement and are usable without any extra setup. The “built-in” functions in the universe package provide a foundation for working with data using Flux.


The universe package provides the following options:

option now = () => system.time


Function option that, by default, returns the current system time. The value of now() is cached at query time, so all instances of now() in a script return the same time value.
