       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the

NAME         top

       times — write process times

SYNOPSIS         top

       times

DESCRIPTION         top

       The times utility shall write the accumulated user and system times
       for the shell and for all of its child processes, in the following
       POSIX locale format:

           "%dm%fs %dm%fs\n%dm%fs %dm%fs\n", <shell user minutes>,
               <shell user seconds>, <shell system minutes>,
               <shell system seconds>, <children user minutes>,
               <children user seconds>, <children system minutes>,
               <children system seconds>

       The four pairs of times shall correspond to the members of the
       <sys/times.h> tms structure (defined in the Base Definitions volume
       of POSIX.1‐2008, Chapter 13, Headers) as returned by times():
       tms_utime, tms_stime, tms_cutime, and tms_cstime, respectively.
