stMktime, stWriteTime - date and time handling
#include <config.h> #include <sttk.h.h> time_tstMktime (char *string); char*stWriteTime (time_t date);
stMktime scans the given string and tries to read a date and time from it. It understands various formats of date strings. The following is a list of all valid formats, optional parts in brackets. [Tue] Jan 5[,] 93 This includes the standard asctime(3) format. Jan 5 With no year given, the year defaults to the current year. 93/01/05 This notation requires month and day represented by exactly two digits. 5.1.93 This is the usual German notation. 5.1. German notation referencing the current year. A certain time, given together with the date must always have the following form. hours:minutes[:seconds] Each of the fields must be an integer value within the proper range (hours: 0-23, minutes and seconds: 0-59). Values below 10 may be written as one digit numbers. The time value may be placed anywhere in the date string: at the beginning, at the end, or somewhere in the middle. Any amount of whitespace may be given between a field of the time value and the separating colon. The time is always considered to be local time. stWriteTime generates a time string similar to asctime(3) from its date argument.
Time Zone Names within the time string (like `MET') are not handled properly. In most cases they will cause a failure.
