FTIME(3) BSD Library Functions Manual FTIME(3)NAMEftime — get date and time
struct timeb *
ftime(struct timeb *tp);
This interface is obsoleted by gettimeofday(2).
It is available from the compatibility library, libcompat.
The ftime() routine fills in a structure pointed to by its argument, as
defined by ⟨sys/timeb.h⟩:
* Structure returned by ftime system call
unsigned short millitm;
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.
