The functions timelocal
() and timegm
() are the inverses of
(3) and gmtime
(3). Both functions take a broken-down
time and convert it to calendar time (seconds since the Epoch, 1970-01-01
00:00:00 +0000, UTC). The difference between the two functions is that
() takes the local timezone into account when doing the
conversion, while timegm
() takes the input value to be Coordinated
Universal Time (UTC).
On success, these functions return the calendar time (seconds since the Epoch),
expressed as a value of type time_t
. On error, they return the value
and set errno
to indicate the cause of the

These functions are nonstandard GNU extensions that are also present on the
BSDs. Avoid their use.
() function is equivalent to the POSIX standard function
(3). There is no reason to ever use it.
