27.7.5.1 Overview [time.clock.file.overview]

namespace std::chrono {
  using file_clock = see below;
}
file_­clock is an alias for a type meeting the Cpp17TrivialClock requirements ([time.clock.req]), and using a signed arithmetic type for file_­clock::rep.
file_­clock is used to create the time_­point system used for file_­time_­type ([filesystems]).
Its epoch is unspecified, and noexcept(file_­clock::now()) is true.
[Note
:
The type that file_­clock denotes may be in a different namespace than std::chrono, such as std::filesystem.
