Using different clock sources

To specify one of the different clock source, use a POSIX timing function that accepts a clock ID. For example:

#include <time.h>

clock_nanosleep (clockid_t clock_id,
                 int flags,
                 const struct timespec *rqtp,
                 struct timespec *rmtp);

The clock_nanosleep() function accepts the clock_id parameter (telling it which clock source to use), a flag (which determines if the time is relative or absolute), a “requested sleep time” parameter (rqtp), as well as a pointer to an area where the function can fill in the amount of time remaining (in the rmtp parameter, which can be NULL if you don't care).
