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.

BSD				 June 4, 1993				   BSD
