The Get_Wall_Clock_Time procedure returns the current value of the Wall Clock time counter in seconds. It is intended to be used internally to the Timer Class, but is made public in case it is needed elsewhere.
The returned value is actually the number of seconds, down to the millisecond, since the midnight at the beginning of 4714 BC/11/24 (-4713 CE/11/24). This is the beginning date of the Julian Day counter according to the Gregorian calendar, which is 38 days before the beginning date of the Julian Day counter according to the Julian calendar (4713 BC/01/01 or -4712 CE/01/01).
