Timestamp

class Timestamp : NSObject, NSCopying

A Timestamp represents a point in time independent of any time zone or calendar, represented as seconds and fractions of seconds at nanosecond resolution in UTC Epoch time. It is encoded using the Proleptic Gregorian Calendar which extends the Gregorian calendar backwards to year one. It is encoded assuming all minutes are 60 seconds long, i.e. leap seconds are smeared so that no leap second table is needed for interpretation. Range is from 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z to 9999-12-31T23:59:59.999999999Z. By restricting to that range, we ensure that we can convert to and from RFC 3339 date strings.

  • Creates a new timestamp.

    Declaration

    Swift

    init(seconds: Int64, nanoseconds: Int32)

    Parameters

    seconds

    the number of seconds since epoch.

    nanoseconds

    the number of nanoseconds after the seconds.

  • Creates a new timestamp.

    Parameters

    seconds

    the number of seconds since epoch.

    nanoseconds

    the number of nanoseconds after the seconds.

  • Creates a new timestamp from the given date.

    Declaration

    Swift

    convenience init(date: Date)
  • Creates a new timestamp with the current date / time.

    Declaration

    Swift

    convenience init()
  • Returns a new NSDate corresponding to this timestamp. This may lose precision.

    Declaration

    Swift

    func dateValue() -> Date
  • Undocumented

    Declaration

    Swift

    func compare(_ other: Timestamp) -> ComparisonResult
  • Represents seconds of UTC time since Unix epoch 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. Must be from 0001-01-01T00:00:00Z to 9999-12-31T23:59:59Z inclusive.

    Declaration

    Swift

    var seconds: Int64 { get }
  • Non-negative fractions of a second at nanosecond resolution. Negative second values with fractions must still have non-negative nanos values that count forward in time. Must be from 0 to 999,999,999 inclusive.

    Declaration

    Swift

    var nanoseconds: Int32 { get }
