    strftime() and other functions in
    #include <ctime>
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You read the time
    You format the time using strftime(), and that stores a string in a char array
    You then output that string in the desired part of the file.
