OFFTIME(3)                 Library Functions Manual                 OFFTIME(3)

NAME
     offtime, timeoff, timegm, timelocal -- convert date and time

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;time.h>&gt;

     struct tm *
     offtime(const time_t * clock, long int offset);

     struct tm *
     offtime_r(const time_t * clock, long int offset, struct tm *ret);

     time_t
     timeoff(struct tm * tm, long int offset);

     time_t
     timegm(struct tm * tm);

     time_t
     timelocal(struct tm * tm);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions are inspired by C standard interfaces named similarly.

     offtime() converts the calendar time clock, offset by offset seconds,
     into broken-down time, expressed as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

     offtime_r() is similar to offtime() but it places the returned struct tm
     * in the user supplied ret argument.

     timeoff() converts the broken-down time tm, expressed as UTC, offset by
     offset seconds, into a calendar time value.

     timegm() converts the broken-down time tm into a calendar time value,
     effectively being the inverse of gmtime(3).  It is equivalent to the C
     standard function mktime(3) operating in UTC.

     timelocal() converts the broken down time tm, expressed as local time,
     into a calendar time value.  It is equivalent to the C standard function
     mktime(3), and is provided for symmetry only.
