timegm, timelocal - inverses of gmtime and localtime
The functions timelocal() and timegm() are the inverses of localtime(3) and gmtime(3). Both functions take a broken-down time and convert it to calendar time (seconds since the Epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0000, UTC). The difference between the two functions is that timelocal() takes the local timezone into account when doing the conversion, while timegm() takes the input value to be Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
The result cannot be represented.
These functions are nonstandard GNU extensions that are also present on the BSDs. Avoid their use.
