/* Title: time
 * Implementation of the C time.h functions
 *
 * Provides mechanisms to set and read the current time, based
 * on the microcontroller Real-Time Clock (RTC), plus some 
 * standard C manipulation and formating functions. 
 *
 * Example:
 * > #include "mbed.h"
 * >
 * > int main() {
 * >     set_time(1256729737);  // Set RTC time to Wed, 28 Oct 2009 11:35:37
 * >      
 * >     while(1) {    
 * >         time_t seconds = time(NULL);
 * >         
 * >         printf("Time as seconds since January 1, 1970 = %d\n", seconds);
 * >  
 * >         printf("Time as a basic string = %s", ctime(&seconds));
 * >
 * >         char buffer[32];
 * >         strftime(buffer, 32, "%I:%M %p\n", localtime(&seconds));
 * >         printf("Time as a custom formatted string = %s", buffer);
 * >    
 * >         wait(1);
 * >     }
 * > }
