c0dbee2000-08-01Mirar (Pontus Hagland) # There were no leap seconds before 1972, because the official mechanism # accounting for the discrepancy between atomic time and the earth's rotation # did not exist until the early 1970s. # The correction (+ or -) is made at the given time, so lines # will typically look like: # Leap YEAR MON DAY 23:59:60 + R/S # or # Leap YEAR MON DAY 23:59:59 - R/S
93f75a2013-11-21Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) # If the leapsecond is Rolling (R) the given time is local time. # If the leapsecond is Stationary (S) the given time is UTC.
