FTIME(3)	      DragonFly 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.
