       plctime - Calculate continuous time from broken-down time for the current stream


       plctime(year, month, day, hour, min, sec, ctime)


       Calculate  continuous  time,  ctime,  from  broken-down  time for the current stream.  The
       broken-down time is specified by the following parameters: year, month,  day,  hour,  min,
       and sec. This function is the inverse of plbtime(3plplot).

       The  PLplot  definition of broken-down time is a calendar time that completely ignores all
       time zone offsets, i.e., it is the user's responsibility to apply  those  offsets  (if  so
       desired)  before  using the PLplot time API.  By default broken-down time is defined using
       the proleptic Gregorian calendar without the insertion of leap seconds and continuous time
       is defined as the number of seconds since the Unix epoch of 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. However,
       other   definitions   of   broken-down   and   continuous   time   are    possible,    see
       plconfigtime(3plplot) which specifies that transformation for the current stream.
