I've found that there is a function called "trftime" in Sqlite. However, I cannot find any function like this in T-SQL. Is there any function to do this?

Unless you're looking for..

datename(dw, getdate())..?!?!

Since the datepart is dependent on the current setting of "datefirst"...check that first if that's the one you want..

If you only want to get the day index, you should check the following description:

You really do need to tell us what that does. Are you looking for a numeric day of the week, a 3 letter name of the day of the week, or the full name of the day of the week?

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

You don't need a UDF for this...

 SELECT (DATEDIFF(dd,'17530101',GETDATE())-1) %7
