All 64-bit platforms have 64-bit time_t, so that covers most of the possible problems. Even on 32-bit platforms, the major filesystems use 64-bit times, so the data is good to go on 64-bit systems. And in theory it should be possible to change time_t to unsigned, and get another two-thirds of a century out of it... -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
