I've been using localtime() to display the time on a Sun Workstation (Solaris 5.X) but I don't get the right time. The time that I get on the tm structure is 11/31/69. Note that I use the clock() function to retrieve the time_t structure needed by localtime(). So it my be the clock() function that is not working.
