NAMEsys/time.h --- time types
DESCRIPTIONThe <sys/time.h> header shall define the timeval structure, which shall include at least the following members:
time_t tv_sec Seconds. suseconds_t tv_usec Microseconds.
struct timeval it_interval Timer interval. struct timeval it_value Current value.
- Decrements in real time.
- Decrements in process virtual time.
Decrements both in process virtual time and when the system is running
on behalf of the process.
header shall define the following as described in
The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined
as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.
int getitimer(int, struct itimerval *); int gettimeofday(struct timeval *restrict, void *restrict); int setitimer(int, const struct itimerval *restrict, struct itimerval *restrict); int select(int, fd_set *restrict, fd_set *restrict, fd_set *restrict, struct timeval *restrict); int utimes(const char *, const struct timeval );
