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 GLib.Timer.

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

Instead, do the following: |[<!-- language="C" --> time_t ttime; GTime gtime;

time (&ttime); gtime = (GTime)ttime; ]|
