  I have a question about the time type in SDL programming. I am now using
Telelogic Tau 4.3 and We all know that "now" is the only predefined value of time
type. But I don't know if "now" can give the actual system time? In simulations, I
found out that time in SDL only makes an abstract sense, and it is only used to
schedule events. It seems that it has no relations with the physical time.
  I hope to stamp the received packet with the current system time, Can "now" be
useful? If not, what should I do?
  Thanks in advance!
  Best regards,
Yang Yang
