Hi attached are two files that I am using to get one channel open. Now I
need a second. I hate that I can not seem to remember enough C to do it.
Any assistence would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

The Linux/UNIX gettimeofday() function reports the time in the current
Epoch. That Epoch is defined as starting "00:00:00 UTC, January 1, 1970"
C# provides a DateTime interface with a similar concept of time in the
current Epoch. Just to make life interesting, C# defines the Epoch as
being "12:00:00, January 1, 0001". (Note the mysterious absence of UTC
in that start...)
This is, of course, just some offset. My problem is that I am trying to
find out if the offset is some agreed international standard. I must be
looking in the wrong place. I see lots of C# code to fiddle with this.
But what about us crazy C programmers on Linux?
System.DateTime dateTime = new System.DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
tells the time in the C# Epoch at the start of the Linux/UNIX epoch. I
guess I could run this once and save the result as an offset. But I
would be a bit happier if there was some agreed value for this so I do
not chance getting a bad value from some buggy C# implementation. I'm a
suspicious type of guy sometimes.
This question has arisen because we I am integrating some fancy Danish
reflection measurement device into our Linux apps. The data provided by
these devices is timestamped with UTC time - encoded with the C#
DateTime functions, e.g., 5246315282908540247, which must have been
around 1400 UTC today.
Has anyone made an interface between the Linux Epoch and the C# Epoch?
It seems to me that for this to work, all involved parties must agree on
the elapsed time between C# Epoch start and some more recent Epoch that
has greater agreement on how elapsed time is calculated.
