FTIME(3)            Linux Programmer's Manual            FTIME(3)

NAME
       ftime - return date and time

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/timeb.h>

       int ftime(struct timeb *tp);

DESCRIPTION
       Return  current  date and time in tp, which is declared as
       following:

                 struct timeb {
                      time_t   time;
                      unsigned short millitm;
                      short    timezone;
                      short    dstflag;
                 };

       The structure contains the time since the  epoch  in  sec-
       onds,  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.

RETURN VALUE
       This function always returns 0.
