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, SVID, X/OPEN

NOTES

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