<sys/time.h>(P) 		    POSIX Programmer's Manual			  <sys/time.h>(P)

NAME
       sys/time.h - time types

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/time.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The <sys/time.h> header shall define the timeval structure that includes at least the fol-
       lowing members:

	      time_t	     tv_sec	 Seconds.
	      suseconds_t    tv_usec	 Microseconds.

       The <sys/time.h> header shall define the itimerval structure that includes  at  least  the
       following members:

	      struct timeval it_interval Timer interval.
	      struct timeval it_value	 Current value.

       The time_t and suseconds_t types shall be defined as described in <sys/types.h> .

       The fd_set type shall be defined as described in <sys/select.h> .

       The  <sys/time.h>  header  shall  define  the  following  values for the which argument of
       getitimer() and setitimer():

       ITIMER_REAL
	      Decrements in real time.

       ITIMER_VIRTUAL
	      Decrements in process virtual time.

       ITIMER_PROF
	      Decrements both in process virtual time and when the system is running on behalf of
	      the process.

       The  following  shall  be  defined  as  described  in <sys/select.h> : FD_CLR() FD_ISSET()
       FD_SET() FD_ZERO() FD_SETSIZE

       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   select(int, fd_set *restrict, fd_set *restrict, fd_set *restrict,
			struct timeval *restrict);
	      int   setitimer(int, const struct itimerval *restrict,
			struct itimerval *restrict);
	      int   utimes(const char *, const struct timeval [2]); (LEGACY )

       Inclusion  of the <sys/time.h> header may make visible all symbols from the <sys/select.h>
       header.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
