TIMEGM(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		     TIMEGM(3)

NAME
       timegm, timelocal - inverses of gmtime and localtime

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<time.h>

       time_t timelocal(struct tm *tm);

       time_t timegm(struct tm *tm);

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

       timelocal(), timegm(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The functions timelocal() and timegm() are the inverses of localtime(3)
       and gmtime(3).

CONFORMING TO
       These functions are nonstandard GNU extensions that are also present on
       the BSDs.  Avoid	their use; see NOTES.

NOTES
       The  timelocal()	 function is equivalent	to the POSIX standard function
       mktime(3).  There is no reason to ever use it.

       For a portable version of timegm(), set the TZ environment variable  to
       UTC, call mktime(3) and restore the value of TZ.	 Something like

	   #include <time.h>
	   #include <stdlib.h>

	   time_t
	   my_timegm(struct tm *tm)
	   {
	       time_t ret;
	       char *tz;

	       tz = getenv("TZ");
	       if (tz)
		   tz =	strdup(tz);
	       setenv("TZ", "",	1);
	       tzset();
	       ret = mktime(tm);
	       if (tz) {
		   setenv("TZ",	tz, 1);
		   free(tz);
	       } else
		   unsetenv("TZ");
	       tzset();
	       return ret;
	   }
