--  This package extends Ada.Calendar to handle Hour, Minute, Second,
--  Second_Duration and Day_Of_Week and Day_In_Year from Calendar.Time.
--  Second_Duration precision depends on the target clock precision.
--  GNAT.Calendar provides the same kind of abstraction found in
--  Ada.Calendar. It provides Split and Time_Of to build and split a Time
--  data. And it provides accessor functions to get only one of Hour, Minute,
--  Second, Second_Duration. Other functions are to access more advanced
--  valueas like Day_Of_Week, Day_In_Year and Week_In_Year.

   --  C timeval conversion

   --  C timeval represent a duration (used in Select for example). This
   --  structure is composed of a number of seconds and a number of micro
   --  seconds. The timeval structure is not exposed here because its
   --  definition is target dependent. Interface to C programs is done via a
   --  pointer to timeval structure.

   function To_Timeval  (D : Duration) return timeval;

   --  This is a dummy declaration that should be the largest possible timeval
   --  structure of all supported targets.

   --  The code of this function is a modified version of algorithm 199 from
