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).  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.

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

HISTORY
     The ftime() function appeared in 4.1BSD.
