    If you look at all the functions, related to time/date/etc, that time.h provides this should be fairly straight forward. Grab a C book and there should be a chapter/section related to this that provides examples of certain functions and the commands that you can use(%d, %B, %G, etc). If you have a specific question related to anything I will help.

    I found a related post,it is 10 years old but it seems good take a look if you want need current day, month, year

    Also you could see this example : Individual Day, Month, and Year - C++ Forum

    And for reference see here : struct tm - C++ Reference

    Tip : use google before asking something,because many others may have had the same question..In this way you could save time for yourself and not wait for somebody to answer
