Question Help! Display Time with Millisecond

Hi All,
Urgent! Just a newbie needing advice.

Has anybody have a sample C script code in Unix to display time with milliseconds?

Most of the research I'm doing is up to the seconds format only.

Try these links and quotes and see if they help your research:

time() returns milliseconds since Jan 1, 1970. This number will not overflow any integer wheels until July 8, 2038 (at 03:14:07 UTC if you want to time it). By then, I fully expect everyone to be on at least 64-bit platforms, which means it will cease to matter until well after we're dead and gone. No one EVER writes code that "only looks at the first 9 digits" because hardly anyone ever even uses the "real" value of time(). It is usually converted into a human-readable form with the localtime() function."
From thread:

Others can be found at using the keywords:

UNIX time milliseconds

Yeah, but ftime() has been obsolete for decades. I certainly wouldn't use it for new code. Here is a thread showing how to display time in microseconds. I'm sure that you can convert microseconds to milliseconds.
