NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       tis_get_expiration   -  Obtains  a  value  representing  a
       desired expiration time

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <tis.h>

       int tis_get_expiration(
               const struct timespec *delta,
               struct timespec *abstime );

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

       Standard C Library (libc.so, libc.a)

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]


PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Number of seconds and nanoseconds to add  to  the  current
       system  time. (The result is the time in the future.) This
       result will be placed in abstime.  Value representing  the
       absolute  expiration time. The absolute expiration time is
       obtained by adding delta to the current system  time.  The
       resulting  abstime is in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       If threads are not present, this routine has no effect.

       This routine adds a specified time interval to the current
       absolute system time and returns a new absolute time. This
       new absolute time is used as the expiration time in a call
       to tis_cond_timedwait(3).

       The timespec structure contains the following two fields:

       tv_sec is an integral number of seconds.

       tv_nsec is an integral number of nanoseconds.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       If  an  error  condition  occurs,  this routine returns an
       integer value  indicating  the  type  of  error.  Possible
       return  values are as follows: Successful completion.  The
       value specified by delta is invalid.
