CosTime_TimeService(3erl) Erlang Module Definition CosTime_TimeService(3erl)

NAME

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

DESCRIPTION

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

EXPORTS

universal_time(TimeService) -> Reply
 
Types:
 
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
 
Types:
 
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
 
Types:
 
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
 
Types:
 
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.
