SYNOPSIS

"#define _SVID_SOURCE"" /* glibc2 needs this */"
#include <time.h>

DESCRIPTION

stime sets the system’s idea of the time and date. Time, pointed to by t, is measured in seconds from 00:00:00 GMT January 1, 1970. stime() may only be executed by the super user.

"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.

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