       CosTime_TimeService - This module implements the OMG CosTime::TimeService interface.


       To get access to the record definitions for the structures use:


       universal_time(TimeService) -> Reply


                 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


                 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


                 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


                 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.
