Function template from_ftime

boost::posix_time::from_ftime — Function to create a time object from an initialized FILETIME struct.

Synopsis

// In header: <boost/date_time/posix_time/conversion.hpp>


template<typename TimeT, typename FileTimeT> 
  TimeT from_ftime(const FileTimeT & ft);

Description

Function to create a time object from an initialized FILETIME struct. A FILETIME struct holds 100-nanosecond units (0.0000001). When built with microsecond resolution the FILETIME's sub second value will be truncated. Nanosecond resolution has no truncation.

[Note] Note

FILETIME is part of the Win32 API, so it is not portable to non-windows platforms.

The function is templated on the FILETIME type, so that it can be used with both native FILETIME and the ad-hoc boost::date_time::winapi::file_time type.
