I am reading about jiffies in linux kernel. In one of the related example in the book Linux Device Driver, the author use
head -8 /proc/currentime
to print out some time information.
However this file is not present in my linux installation (kernel: 2.6.32-131.6.1.el6.x86_64).
Why is it the case? Is it because the file path is no longer valid, or it is a distribution feature thing?
It is not present in OSX too. What would be an equivalent in OSX?
