Struct c_time

boost::date_time::c_time — Provides a uniform interface to some 'ctime' functions.

Synopsis

// In header: <boost/date_time/c_time.hpp>


struct c_time {

  // public static functions
  static std::tm * localtime(const std::time_t *, std::tm *) ;
  static std::tm * gmtime(const std::time_t *, std::tm *) ;
  static std::tm * localtime(const std::time_t *, std::tm *) ;
  static std::tm * gmtime(const std::time_t *, std::tm *) ;
};

Description

Provides a uniform interface to some ctime functions and their '_r' counterparts. The '_r' functions require a pointer to a user created std::tm struct whereas the regular functions use a staticly created struct and return a pointer to that. These wrapper functions require the user to create a std::tm struct and send in a pointer to it. A pointer to the user created struct will be returned. All functions do proper checking of the C function results and throw exceptions on error. Therefore the functions will never return NULL.

  2. static std::tm * gmtime(const std::time_t * t, std::tm * result) ;
  3. static std::tm * localtime(const std::time_t * t, std::tm * result) ;
  4. static std::tm * gmtime(const std::time_t * t, std::tm * result) ;
