FTIME(3)                    BSD Programmer's Manual                   FTIME(3)

NAME
     ftime - get date and time

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;sys/timeb.h>&gt;

     struct timeb *
     ftime(struct timeb *tp);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is obsoleted by gettimeofday(2).

     It is available from the compatibility library, libcompat.

     The ftime() routine fills in a structure pointed to by its argument, as
     defined by <sys/timeb.h>:

           /*
            * Structure returned by ftime system call
            */
           struct timeb
           {
                     time_t  time;
                     unsigned short millitm;
                     short   timezone;
                     short   dstflag;
           };

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

     The ftime function appeared in 4.2BSD.
