according to "man vcl" there is a variable "now":


     The following variables are always available:

     now   The current time, in seconds since the epoch.


root at floor [~] $ cat foo.vcl
sub vcl_recv {
        if (now)
                set req.backend = localhost;
        } else {
                set req.backend = localhost;
root at floor [~] $ varnishd -C -f ./foo.vcl
Message from VCC-compiler:
Syntax error in condition, expected '(', '!' or variable name, found 'now'
(input Line 2 Pos 13)
        if (now)
Running VCC-compiler failed, exit 1root at floor [~] $

Hm.  What am I doing wrong?  Or was it renamed?  Removed?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
