Random Number Seed

I have a question:
When one wants to use the random number seed different than the default one (equals to 0) one can use the macro GSL_RNG_SEED=seed from the command line. I would like to use the system time as the seed and have no idea how one can use the it from the command line. Therefore I want to use the function clock() in my C program. Could you help me how the seed can be initialized from the function claock() within my c program?

Thank you for help,
