FTIME(3)                  OpenBSD Programmer's Manual                 FTIME(3)

     ftime - get date and time

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

     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
           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.

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

     The ftime function appeared in 4.2BSD.

OpenBSD 2.6                      June 4, 1993                                1
