The types defined in this subclause shall satisfy the TrivialClock requirements ([time.clock.req]).

Objects of class system_clock represent wall clock time from the system-wide realtime clock.

class system_clock { public: typedefsee belowrep; typedef ratio<unspecified,unspecified> period; typedef chrono::duration<rep, period> duration; typedef chrono::time_point<system_clock> time_point; static constexpr bool is_steady =unspecified; static time_point now() noexcept; // Map to C API static time_t to_time_t (const time_point& t) noexcept; static time_point from_time_t(time_t t) noexcept; };

*Requires:* system_clock::duration::min() < system_clock::duration::zero() shall
be true. [ *Note:* This implies that rep is a signed type. * — end note* ]

```
static time_t to_time_t(const time_point& t) noexcept;
```

```
static time_point from_time_t(time_t t) noexcept;
```

Objects of class steady_clock represent clocks for which values of time_point never decrease as physical time advances and for which values of time_point advance at a steady rate relative to real time. That is, the clock may not be adjusted.

class steady_clock { public: typedefunspecifiedrep; typedef ratio<unspecified,unspecified> period; typedef chrono::duration<rep, period> duration; typedef chrono::time_point<unspecified, duration> time_point; static constexpr bool is_steady = true; static time_point now() noexcept; };

Objects of class high_resolution_clock represent clocks with the shortest tick period. high_resolution_clock may be a synonym for system_clock or steady_clock.

class high_resolution_clock { public: typedefunspecifiedrep; typedef ratio<unspecified,unspecified> period; typedef chrono::duration<rep, period> duration; typedef chrono::time_point<unspecified, duration> time_point; static constexpr bool is_steady =unspecified; static time_point now() noexcept; };
