__pmParseCtime - convert ctime(3) string to tm structure


#include "pmapi.h" #include "libpcp.h" int __pmParseCtime(const char *string, struct tm *rslt, char **errmsg); cc ... -lpcp

__pmParseCtime reverses the asctime(3) function. It accepts a string specifying a time, and fills in the given tm structure. Either a fully specified asctime(3) string like "Mon Mar 4 13:07:47 1996" or a partially specified time like '1996", "Mar 1996", "Mar 4 1996", "Mar", "13:07:47", "13:07", "Mar 4 13:07:47",... is accepted. In addition, the seconds component may be a floating point number, for example "13:07:47.5". The 12 hour clock is also supported, so "13:07" and "1:07 pm" are equivalent. __pmParseCtime returns 0 if successful. It returns -1 and a dynamically allocated error message string in errmsg, if the given string does not parse. Be sure to free(3) the error message string. The tm structure returned in rslt should only be used as an argument to the __pmConvert‐ Time function, as it contains encoded information that will only be correctly interpreted by __pmConvertTime.
