This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.


#include <sys/times.h>


The <sys/times.h> header shall define the tms structure, which is returned by times() and shall include at least the following members:

clock_t  tms_utime  User CPU time.
clock_t  tms_stime  System CPU time.
clock_t  tms_cutime User CPU time of terminated child processes.
clock_t  tms_cstime System CPU time of terminated child processes.

The <sys/times.h> header shall define the clock_t type as described in <sys/types.h>.

The following shall be declared as a function and may also be defined as a macro. A function prototype shall be provided.

clock_t times(struct tms *);
