SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In sys/timeb.h int ftime "struct timeb *tp"

DESCRIPTION


.Bf -symbolic This interface is obsoleted by gettimeofday(2).
.Ef

The ftime routine fills in a structure pointed to by its argument, as defined by
.In 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 appropriate part of the year.
