clinks is the time the change took place in "local clinks". This is the only known use of "local clinks" in the control system and is now a nearly impossible to fix mistake. It is a mistake because "local clinks" are not linear:

  • decrement by 3599 in a single second at the transisiton from daylight savings time(DST)
  • In each transistion from DST a range of "local clinks" values actually end up associated with two times each which is one reason to consider their use here a mistake. Clib provides a routine to convert betwenn "local clinks" and (standard) clinks. That routine is convert_seconds_c. For the convert_type argument use DATE_LOCAL_CLINKS_TO_CLINKS or DATE_CLINKS_TO_LOCAL_CLINKS. See also documentation in clib.h.
