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.
