.. title:: clang-tidy - abseil-time-comparison
Prefer comparisons in the ``absl::Time`` domain instead of the integer domain.
N.B.: In cases where an ``absl::Time`` is being converted to an integer,
alignment may occur. If the comparison depends on this alignment, doing the
comparison in the ``absl::Time`` domain may yield a different result. In
practice this is very rare, and still indicates a bug which should be fixed.
.. code-block:: c++
// Original - Comparison in the integer domain
int x;
absl::Time t;
if (x < absl::ToUnixSeconds(t)) ...
// Suggested - Compare in the absl::Time domain instead
if (absl::FromUnixSeconds(x) < t) ...
