Universal Time
Time as measured by the Earth.
newtype UniversalTime Source #
The Modified Julian Date is the day with the fraction of the day, measured from UT midnight. It's used to represent UT1, which is time as measured by the earth's rotation, adjusted for various wobbles.
Instances
Absolute intervals
This is a length of time, as measured by a clock. Conversion functions will treat it as seconds. It has a precision of 10^12 s.
Instances
secondsToDiffTime :: Integer > DiffTime Source #
Create a DiffTime
which represents an integral number of seconds.
picosecondsToDiffTime :: Integer > DiffTime Source #
Create a DiffTime
from a number of picoseconds.
UTC
UTC is time as measured by a clock, corrected to keep pace with the earth by adding or removing occasional seconds, known as "leap seconds". These corrections are not predictable and are announced with six month's notice. No table of these corrections is provided, as any program compiled with it would become out of date in six months.
If you don't care about leap seconds, use UTCTime
and NominalDiffTime
for your clock calculations,
and you'll be fine.
This is the simplest representation of UTC. It consists of the day number, and a time offset from midnight. Note that if a day has a leap second added to it, it will have 86401 seconds.
UTCTime  

Instances
data NominalDiffTime Source #
This is a length of time, as measured by UTC. Conversion functions will treat it as seconds. It has a precision of 10^12 s. It ignores leapseconds, so it's not necessarily a fixed amount of clock time. For instance, 23:00 UTC + 2 hours of NominalDiffTime = 01:00 UTC (+ 1 day), regardless of whether a leapsecond intervened.
Instances
nominalDay :: NominalDiffTime Source #
One day in NominalDiffTime
.
addUTCTime :: NominalDiffTime > UTCTime > UTCTime Source #
addUTCTime a b = a + b
diffUTCTime :: UTCTime > UTCTime > NominalDiffTime Source #
diffUTCTime a b = a  b
getTime_resolution :: DiffTime Source #
The resolution of getSystemTime
, getCurrentTime
, getPOSIXTime
