SYNOPSIS

#define _SVID_SOURCE /* glibc2 needs this */

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

The caller is not the super-user.
EFAULT
Error in getting information from user space.

NOTES

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