System Services, $NUMUTC, Arguments

timbuf OpenVMS usage:vector_word_unsigned type: word access: write only mechanism: by 32- or 64-bit reference (Alpha and I64); by 32-bit reference (VAX) Buffer into which $NUMUTC writes the converted date and time. The timbuf argument is the 32-bit address (on VAX systems) or the 32- or 64-bit address (on Alpha and I64 systems) of a 13- word structure containing time, inaccuracy of time, and time differential factor. The time differential factor encoded in the 128-bit buffer is used to convert the UTC to its numerical components. Negative values in the inaccuracy field indicate an infinite inaccuracy. Refer to the HP OpenVMS System Services Reference Manual to view the diagram of the fields in this structure. utcadr OpenVMS usage:coordinated universal time type: utc_date_time access: read only mechanism: by 32- or 64-bit reference (Alpha and I64); by 32-bit reference (VAX) The 128-bit UTC time value to be converted. The utcadr argument is optional; if it is not used, $NUMUTC will use the current time.
