 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[load]] utime \\
 +$utime_add(sec1 usec1 sec2 usec2) \\
 +$utime_sub(newer_sec newer_usec older-sec older_usec) \\
 +$time_since(sec1 usec1)
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +The [[utime function]] returns a string with two words, the first word
 +containing the number of seconds and the second word containing the number
 +of useconds.
 +
 +This script creates three functions that make it easier to work with these
 +values.
 +
 +The utime_add function takes two utime values (for a total of 4 words) and
 +adds them together. ​ This can be useful to calculate what time in the future
 +is a certain interval away
 +
 +The utime_sub function takes two utime values, the first of which should ​
 +be newer than the second, and tells you how much time elapsed between them.
 +
 +The time_since function takes one utime value, and tells you how much
 +time has elapsed since then.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +This script first appeared in epic4pre0.042.
