How to get current timestamp in milliseconds since 1970 just the way Java gets
In Java, we can use
System.currentTimeMillis() to get the current timestamp in Milliseconds since epoch time which is -
the difference, measured in milliseconds, between the current time and midnight, January 1, 1970 UTC.
In C++ how to get the same thing?
Currently I am using this to get the current timestamp -
struct timeval tp;
long int ms = tp.tv_sec * 1000 + tp.tv_usec / 1000; //get current timestamp in millisecondscout << ms << endl;
This looks right or not?
Best Solutions is
If you have access to the C++ 11 libraries, check out the
std::chrono library. You can use it to get the milliseconds since the Unix Epoch like this:
#include <chrono>// ...using namespace std::chrono;
milliseconds ms = duration_cast< milliseconds >(
