ftime -- get date and time
Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat)
ftime(struct timeb *tp);
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
unsigned short millitm;
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), ctime(3), time(3)
The ftime function appeared in 4.2BSD.
