FTIME(3)                   Library Functions Manual                   FTIME(3)

NAME
     ftime -- get date and time

LIBRARY
     Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat)

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

     int
     ftime(struct timeb *tp);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is obsoleted by gettimeofday(2).  It is available from the
     compatibility library, libcompat.

     Note: time zone information is no longer provided by this interface.  See
     localtime(3) for information on how to retrieve it.

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

           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 timezone and dstflag fields
     are provided for source compatibility, but are always zero.
