TIME(3V)               C LIBRARY FUNCTIONS               TIME(3V)

     time, ftime - get date and time

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/time.h>

     time_t time(tloc)
     time_t *tloc;

     #include <sys/timeb.h>

     int ftime(tp)
     struct timeb *tp;

     time() returns the time since 00:00:00 GMT,  Jan.  1,  1970,
     measured in seconds.

     If tloc is non-NULL, the return value is also stored in  the
     location to which tloc points.

     ftime() fills in a structure pointed to by tp, as defined in
          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 Day-
     light Saving time applies  locally  during  the  appropriate
     part of the year.

     time() returns the value of time on success.  On failure, it
     returns (time_t) -1.

     On success, ftime() returns no useful value.  On failure, it
     returns -1.
