[PD] Getting system time from an object

Thanks I have a happy friend now.

The Max/MSP reference manual has a facility at end that has a list of 
all the objects and their descriptions, usually one little sentence per 
object. Is there anything like this available for PD? The core objects 
can be seen by the help reached from the help and I know that it is hard 
to maintain such a thing with a growing list of externals as in 
PD-extended package. But I'm asking anyways as even an incomplete list 
of descriptions of extended object list that is put together would 
suffice I think. This becomes a problem for me too, sometimes. I happen 
to be sure that an object doing a particular job exists but I just don't 
know the name. The mailing list definitely helps(as I got an answer 
within a couple of minutes! Thanks!). But searching keywords from such a 
list would point to the right direction easily I think.
