There's pretty much nothing in terms of time-related functions - beyond C's 
time function - which exist on all OSes.  If you stick to just Posix, you do 
get a bit more - e.g. gettimeofday - but even then, it varies per OS pretty 
quickly. This is definitely the sort of thing that you're going to have to 
handle differently on each OS that you're working with.
