Handbook link for time functions for RTC

The link in the Handbook under Time and Interrupts

•time - Get and set the realtime clock

Seems to be broken - page not found error.

Has the documentation been moved somewhere else?

Hi Jim, do you know where you found the broken link?

I would say, where not? All code which was somewhere under api/mbed/trunk is gone afaik, it is just that the RTC code was used most often.

No, http://mbed.org/projects/libraries/api/mbed/trunk/rtc_time it used to be there and the time functions still compile in my old code.

Click on the blue "time" in the handbook under "Time and Interrupts"

I assume it has something to do with the new version of the library. I think some of these functions are in a typical C library - but that old page had some nice mbed examples using them.

The file is still visible, we need to add back a copy of the rendered documentation: http://mbed.org/users/mbed_official/code/mbed/file/0954ebd79f59/rtc_time.h

There are more dead links. The I2C API links are also affected http://mbed.org/handbook/I2C

I previously asked this question, and am a little dissapointed that staff have not either fixed the links, redirected the target page, or reinstated the missing page.

If you have a look here.... http://mbed.org/questions/272/where-has-the-rtc-api-page-gone/

you will find that Erik Olieman was intrepid enough to retrieve a cached version of that page.

Good luck
