    Huh? What do you mean EXACTLY by "external interrupt". I believe that what you mean by "interrupt" and what I understand it to mean are very different things...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Actually leopard board will take snap whenever some object comes . I want to track the time,date and year whenever it takes snap. For that should i read some rtc registers?? is that different for different processors??

    You still are not (for me) being clear enough in what you mean, PRECISELY, by "whenever some object comes"...

    Well, when you save the image, the file system will preserve the created date+time of the image when it was stored. This does not require any additional operations.

    Hi
    I could print time+date+year from rtc but i want to write it in to a file. Any idea??

    rtc_fd = open("/dev/rtc", O_RDONLY,0);
    ret = ioctl(rtc_fd, RTC_RD_TIME, &rtc_tm);
    printf("Current RTC date/time is %d-%d-%d, %02d:%02d:%02d.\r\n",
    rtc_tm.tm_mday, rtc_tm.tm_mon + 1, rtc_tm.tm_year+1900,
    rtc_tm.tm_hour, rtc_tm.tm_min, rtc_tm.tm_sec);

    Thanks
