SQL fucntion calls

Question:
Does SQL have a function to get only the time--rather than getDate()--which gets the date and time, or a function to get the Unix time() time. (the one that give the seconds since 1970).

Answer:
If you can handle the time as a character string, the convert function can be used to return just the time. So convert(char,date_field_name,108) will return only the hh:mm:ss. Check out the formats supported by convert in the reference. Additionally, you can use the datepart function to return any part of the date--be it the hour, minute, or second--as an integer. However, to get all three, you would have to call the function three times.
