TIME(2)                       System Calls Manual                      TIME(2)



NAME
       time, ftime - get date and time

SYNOPSIS
       long time(0)

       long time(tloc)
       long *tloc;

       #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
       #include <&lt;sys/timeb.h>&gt;
       ftime(tp)
       struct timeb *tp;

DESCRIPTION
       Time  returns  the  time  since 00:00:00 GMT, Jan. 1, 1970, measured in
       seconds.

       If tloc is nonnull, the return value is also stored  in  the  place  to
       which tloc points.

       The  ftime  entry  fills  in a structure pointed to by its argument, as
       defined by &lt;sys/timeb.h&gt;:

       The structure contains the time since the epoch in seconds, up to  1000
       milliseconds  of more-precise interval, the local timezone (measured in
       minutes of time westward from Greenwich), and a flag that, if  nonzero,
       indicates  that  Daylight Saving time applies locally during the appro-
       priate part of the year.
