       comedi_set_clock_source - set master clock for a subdevice


       #include <comedilib.h>

       int comedi_set_clock_source(comedi_t * device, unsigned int subdevice,
                                   unsigned int channel, unsigned int clock,
                                   unsigned int period_ns);




       This function selects a master clock for a subdevice. The clock parameter selects the
       master clock, and is driver-dependant. If the subdevice does not support configuring its
       master clocks on a per-channel basis, then the channel parameter will be ignored. The
       period_ns parameter specifies the clock's period in nanoseconds. It may left unspecified
       by using a value of zero. Drivers will ignore the clock period if they already know what
       the clock period should be for the specified clock (e.g. for an on-board 20MHz
       oscillator). Certain boards which use a phase-locked loop to synchronize to external clock
       sources must be told the period of the external clock. Specifying a clock period for an
       external clock may also allow the driver to support TRIG_TIMER sources in commands while
       using the external clock.

       The clock may be queried with the comedi_get_clock_source function.

       This function is only useable on subdevices that provide support for the
       INSN_CONFIG_SET_CLOCK_SRC configuration instruction.


       0 on success, -1 on error.
