CosTime_TimeService ā€” This module implements the OMG CosTime::TimeService interface.

Description

To get access to the record definitions for the structures use:
-include_lib("cosTime/include/*.hrl").

Exports

universal_time(TimeService) -> Reply

Types:

TimeService = #objref
Reply = UTO | {'EXCEPTION", #'TimerService_TimeUnavailable'{}}
UTO = #objref

This operation returns the current time and the Inaccuracy given when starting this application in a UTO. The time base is 15 october 1582 00:00. Comparing two time objects which use different time base is, by obvious reasons, pointless.

new_universal_time(TimeService, Time, Inaccuracy, Tdf) -> UTO

Types:

TimeService = UTO = #objref
Time = Inaccuracy = ulonglong()
Tdf = short()

This operation creates a new UTO object representing the time parameters given. This is the only way to create a UTO with an arbitrary time from its components. This is useful when using the Timer Event Service.

uto_from_utc(TimeService, Utc) -> UTO

Types:

TimeService = UTO = #objref
Utc = #'TimeBase_UtcT'{time, inacclo, inacchi, tdf}
time = ulonglong()
inacclo = ulong()
inacchi = ushort()
tdf = short()

This operation is used to create a UTO given a time in the Utc form.

new_interval(TimeService, Lower, Upper) -> TIO

Types:

TimeService = TIO = #objref
Lower = Upper = ulonglong()

This operation is used to create a new TIO object, representing the input parameters. If Lower is greater than Upper BAD_PARAM is raised.
