    Command:

    ftime

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <sys/timeb.h>
    
           int ftime(struct timeb *tp);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This  function  returns  the  current  time as seconds and milliseconds
           since the Epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 (UTC).  The time is returned
           in tp, which is declared as follows:
    
               struct timeb {
                   time_t         time;
                   unsigned short millitm;
                   short          timezone;
                   short          dstflag;
               };
    
           Here  time is the number of seconds since the Epoch, and millitm is the
           number of milliseconds since time seconds since the Epoch.   The  time-
           zone  field  is  the local timezone measured in minutes of time west of
           Greenwich (with a negative value indicating minutes east of Greenwich).
           The  dstflag  field is a flag that, if nonzero, indicates that Daylight
           Saving time applies locally during the appropriate part of the year.
    
           POSIX.1-2001 says that the contents of the timezone and dstflag  fields
           are unspecified; avoid relying on them.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           This function always returns 0.  (POSIX.1-2001 specifies, and some sys-
           tems document, a -1 error return.)
    
    
    

    ATTRIBUTES

       Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
           The ftime() function is thread-safe.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           4.2BSD,  POSIX.1-2001.   POSIX.1-2008  removes  the  specification   of
           ftime().
    
           This  function is obsolete.  Don't use it.  If the time in seconds suf-
           fices,  time(2)  can  be  used;  gettimeofday(2)  gives   microseconds;
           clock_gettime(2) gives nanoseconds but is not as widely available.
    
    
    

    BUGS

           Under  libc4  and  libc5  the  millitm  field is meaningful.  But early
           glibc2 is buggy and returns 0 there; glibc 2.1.1 is correct again.
