Description [src]

typedef gint32 GTime

Simply a replacement for time_t. It has been deprecated since it is not equivalent to time_t on 64-bit platforms with a 64-bit time_t.

Unrelated to GTimer.

Note that GTime is defined to always be a 32-bit integer, unlike time_t which may be 64-bit on some systems. Therefore, GTime will overflow in the year 2038, and you cannot use the address of a GTime variable as argument to the UNIX time() function.

Instead, do the following:

time_t ttime;
GTime gtime;

time (&ttime);
gtime = (GTime)ttime;
Deprecated since:2.62

This is not Y2038-safe. Use GDateTime or #time_t instead.
