       This documentation is intended for internal Performance Co-Pilot
       (PCP) developer use.

DESCRIPTION         top

       __pmConvertTime accepts a tm structure that has been filled in by
       __pmParseCtime(3) and a reference time point origin, and fills in
       the given rslt structure with the time the user meant when he
       specified a partial ctime or positive or negative time interval.

       Typically, the argument origin is the start time for a set of
       PCP archive logs, unless the user specified a negative interval
       offset, in which case it is the end time of the log.

       __pmConvertTime returns 0 if successful.  It returns -1 and
       writes an error message to stderr, if an error is detected.

       Use pmNewZone(3), pmNewContextZone(3) or pmUseZone(3) to
       establish a new current timezone that will effect
