std::chrono::file_clock: std::chrono::file_clock


std::chrono::file_clock - std::chrono::file_clock


Defined in header <chrono>
using file_clock = /* see below */; (since C++20)

std::chrono::file_clock is an alias for the clock used for std::filesystem::file_time_type. Its epoch is unspecified.
file_clock meets the TrivialClock requirements.

Time point family

Defined in namespace std::chrono
template<class Duration> (since C++20)
using file_time = std::chrono::time_point<std::chrono::file_clock, Duration>;

operator<<_(std::chrono::file_time) performs stream output on a file_time
                                     (function template)

from_stream_(std::chrono::file_time) parses a file_time from a stream according to the provided format
                                     (function template)

to_stream_(std::chrono::file_time) outputs a file_time into a stream according to the provided format
                                     (function template)

Member types

Member type Definition
rep signed arithmetic type representing the number of ticks in the clock's duration
period a std::ratio type representing the tick period of the clock, in seconds
duration std::chrono::duration<rep, period>, capable of representing negative durations
time_point std::chrono::time_point<std::chrono::file_clock>

Member constants

constexpr bool is_steady true if the time between ticks is always constant, i.e. calls to now() return values that increase monotonically even in case of some external clock adjustment, otherwise false
                         (public static member constant)

Member functions

file_clock provides exactly one of the following two pairs of static member functions:

* to_utc and from_utc; or
* to_sys and from_sys.

now returns a std::chrono::time_point representing the current point in time
                    (public static member function)

to_utc converts between file_time and utc_time
from_utc (public static member function)

[static] (optional)

to_sys converts between file_time and sys_time
from_sys (public static member function)

[static] (optional)
