Description Mike Frysinger 2016-02-27 22:38:07 UTC
sys/time.h in openbsd provides a few helpers like timercmp.  can we get this included ?


i'm looking at the defines in these sections:
/* Operations on timevals. */
/* Operations on timespecs. */
Comment 1 Guillem Jover 2016-09-22 20:38:48 UTC

[ Hmm another one that it seems I didn't get notified about. :/ ]

The timeval macros are already provided at least on glibc systems on <sys/times.h>. Are you targeting a system using another libc missing those macros? If so I'm happy to add them.

The timespec ones are missing even on glibc, so those I happy to include in any case.
Comment 2 Mike Frysinger 2016-11-09 17:20:29 UTC
yeah, i was looking at C libs beyond glibc (so looking at the APIs not defined by POSIX)
Comment 3 Guillem Jover 2017-06-19 02:45:00 UTC
This should be fixed now in libbsd 0.8.4.
