NAME

       stime - set time

SYNOPSIS

       #include <time.h>

       int stime(const time_t *t);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       stime():
           Since glibc 2.19:
               _DEFAULT_SOURCE
           Glibc 2.19 and earlier:
               _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       NOTE: This function is deprecated; use clock_settime(2) instead.

       stime()  sets  the  system's  idea  of  the  time and date.  The time, pointed to by t, is
       measured in seconds since the Epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00  +0000  (UTC).   stime()  may  be
       executed only 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.

NOTES

       Starting  with  glibc  2.31,  this  function  is  no  longer  available  to  newly  linked
       applications and is no longer declared in <time.h>.
