NAME

       CosTime_UTO - This module implements the OMG CosTime::UTO interface.

DESCRIPTION

       To get access to the record definitions for the structures use:
       -include_lib("cosTime/include/*.hrl").

EXPORTS

       '_get_time'(UTO) -> ulonglong()

              Types:

                 UTO = #objref

              This operation returns the time associated with the target object.

       '_get_inaccuracy'(UTO) -> ulonglong()

              Types:

                 UTO = #objref

              This operation returns the inaccuracy associated with the target object.

       '_get_tdf'(UTO) -> short()

              Types:

                 UTO = #objref

              This  operation  returns  the  time  displacement factor associated with the target
              object.

       '_get_utc_time'(UTO) -> UtcT

              Types:

                 UTO = #objref
                 Utc = #'TimeBase_UtcT'{time, inacclo, inacchi, tdf}
                 time = ulonglong()
                 inacclo = ulong()
                 inacchi = ushort()
                 tdf = short()

              This operation returns the data associated with the target object in Utc form.

       absolute_time(UTO) -> OtherUTO

              Types:

                 UTO = OtherUTO = #objref

              This operation create a new UTO object representing the time in the  target  object
              added  to current time (UTC). The time base is 15 october 1582 00:00. Comparing two
              time objects which use different time  base  is,  by  obvious  reasons,  pointless.
              Raises  DATA_CONVERSION if causes an overflow. This operation is only useful if the
              target object represents a relative time.

       compare_time(UTO, ComparisonType, OtherUTO) -> Reply

              Types:

                 UTO = OtherUTO = #objref
                 ComparisonType = 'IntervalC' | 'MidC'
                 Reply = 'TCEqualTo' | 'TCLessThan' | 'TCGreaterThan' | 'TCIndeterminate'

              This operation compares the time associated with the target object  and  the  given
              UTO object. The different ComparisonType are:

                * 'MidC'  -  only  compare  the time represented by each object. Furthermore, the
                  target object is always used as the first parameter in the comparison, i.e., if
                  the target object's time is larger 'TCGreaterThan' will be returned.

                * 'IntervalC'  -  also  takes the inaccuracy into consideration, i.e., if the two
                  objects interval overlaps 'TCIndeterminate' is returned, otherwise the  as  for
                  'MidC'.

       time_to_interval(UTO, OtherUTO) -> TIO

              Types:

                 UTO = OtherUTO = TIO = #objref

              This  operation  returns  a TIO representing the interval between the target object
              and the given UTO midpoint times. The inaccuracy in the objects are not taken  into
              consideration.

       interval(UTO) -> TIO

              Types:

                 UTO = TIO = #objref

              This operation creates a TIO object representing the error interval around the time
              value   represented   by   the   target    object,    i.e.,    TIO.upper_bound    =
              UTO.time+UTO.inaccuracy and TIO.lower_bound = UTO.time-UTO.inaccuracy.
