SYNOPSIS

#define _SVID_SOURCE /* glibc2 needs this */

RETURN VALUE

On success, zero is returned. On error, −1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EPERM

The caller is not the super-user.

EFAULT

Error in getting information from user space.

NOTES

Under glibc2, <time.h> only provides a prototype when _SVID_SOURCE is defined.
