Flux universe package (built-in)
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.
universe package provides the following options:
option now = () => system.time() option location = timezone.utc
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.
Location used to determine timezone. Default is
Flux uses the timezone information (commonly referred to as “tz” or “zoneinfo”) provided by the operating system.
