This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
gettimeofday - get the date and time SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/time.h> int gettimeofday(struct timeval *restrict tp, void *restrict tzp); DESCRIPTION
The gettimeofday() function shall obtain the current time, expressed as seconds and microseconds since the Epoch, and store it in the timeval structure pointed to by tp. The resolution of the system clock is unspecified. If tzp is not a null pointer, the behavior is unspecified. RETURN VALUE
The gettimeofday() function shall return 0 and no value shall be reserved to indicate an error. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO
