BSON Clock Abstraction


int64_t bson_get_monotonic_time (void);
int     bson_gettimeofday       (struct timeval  *tv,
#if defined(__SUNPRO_C)
                                 void            *tz);
                                 struct timezone *tz);


The clock abstraction in Libbson provides a cross-platform way to handle timeouts within the BSON library. It abstracts the differences in implementations of gettimeofday() as well as providing a monotonic (incrementing only) clock in microseconds.
