FTIME(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		      FTIME(3)

NAME
     ftime — get date and time

LIBRARY
     Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/timeb.h>

     int
     ftime(struct timeb *tp);

DESCRIPTION
     This interface is obsoleted by gettimeofday(2).

     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.

SEE ALSO
     gettimeofday(2), settimeofday(2), ctime(3), time(3)

HISTORY
     The ftime function appeared in 4.2BSD.
