struct timeval

The buffer of type struct timeval used by the File-I/O protocol is defined as follows:

     struct timeval {
         time_t tv_sec;  /* second */
         long   tv_usec; /* microsecond */

The integral datatypes conform to the definitions given in the appropriate section (see Integral Datatypes, for details) so this structure is of size 8 bytes.
