6.10.1 Time Library Specifics

The time library exposes a collection of interfaces (functions and symbolic constants) concerned with date and time processing.

Central to the library are the `date' and `time' types.

Data of the `date' type corresponds calendar dates, defining such specifics as year and month, minute and second.

Data of the `time' type corresponds time offsets. May be negatively defined.
