I am new to C and linux.

I am trying to create a system time, set it, and get it.

I need to be able to set the time as seconds epoch. I.e. a 32-bit value of seconds. The function will recieve the time as an uint32.

I need to be able to get the time in seconds too.

In addition, I need to be able to set and get the milliseconds of this time.

I have looked for a way of doing that a lot. But, the more I look, the more confused I get :)

I have looked at time_t and timeb. Milliseconds are in timeb but not in time_t.

Is there a simple way of doing that?

Please let me know if you want to see what coding I have done so far.
