Feature #8096

Updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada over 2 years ago

A lot of scenarios and applications require the use of (({Time.now.to_i})) Time.now.to_i which is used as current_timestamp in systems.

The introduction of (({Time.current_timestamp})) Time.current_timestamp {or something with similar with different name} would provide implicit integer timestamp instead of going from
(({Time.now})) Time.now -> time_object -> to_i -> integer timestamp value

So instead of

Time.now.to_i # Outputs => 1363274618 1363274618}))

one could use

Time.current_timestamp # Outputs => 1363274618 1363274618}))
