    C Routine for a Date

    Does anyone have a C routine that allows the user
    to pass a date, 'YYYYMMDD' and the # of days
    to add to the date and return the new date.

    I need it to calculate dates in the future.

    Thanks

    Kevin

    There is no C routine to do this, but you could /easily/ write your own....

    I agree with Agrajag. But if you need to get started on this then you should probably start by looking into what functions like time(), gmtime() and other "time" functions do. And also on how to work with the time_t structure. (they should all be in the time.h header file of your compiler. this stuff is pretty standard).

    Ooops, my bad!

    The structure name is not "time_t", it's "tm".
