10.9.1 Time types
Time type is represented by a symbol. This module defines
the following constant variables that is bound to its name, for
- Constant: time-utc
UTC time. Gauche's built-in
current-time always returns
this type (See section 188.8.131.52 SRFI time).
- Constant: time-tai
International Atomic Time. This time is a bit larger than UTC, due to
the leap seconds.
- Constant: time-monotonic
Implementation-dependent monotonically increasing time.
In Gauche, this is the same as
- Constant: time-duration
Duration between two absolute time points.
- Constant: time-process
CPU time in current process.
Gauche calculates this from user time and system time returned by
- Constant: time-thread
CPU time in current thread.
In the current implementation, this is the same as
