@defun float-time &optional time-value
This function returns the current time as a floating-point number of
seconds since the epoch. The argument @var{time-value}, if given,
specifies a time to convert instead of the current time. The argument
should have the same form as for @code{current-time-string} (see
above), and it also accepts the output of @code{current-time} and
@code{file-attributes}.
@emph{Warning}: Since the result is floating point, it may not be
exact. Do not use this function if precise time stamps are required.
