NAME

stime - set time  

SYNOPSIS

#define _SVID_SOURCE /* glibc2 needs this */
#include <time.h>

int stime(time_t *t);  

DESCRIPTION

stime() sets the system's idea of the time and date. Time, pointed to by t, is measured in seconds from 00:00:00 GMT January 1, 1970. stime() may only be executed by the superuser.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.  

ERRORS

EFAULT
Error in getting information from user space.
EPERM
The calling process has insufficient privilege. Under Linux the CAP_SYS_TIME privilege is required.
 

CONFORMING TO

SVr4.  

NOTES

Under glibc2, <time.h> only provides a prototype when _SVID_SOURCE is defined.
