    Date in int

    I need a way of getting the date as integers from a computer.I can get:

    Code:
    char curDate[9];
    	_strdate(curDate);
    	cout << "The current date is  " << curDate  << " \n";
    But is there a faster way of getting
    int day
    int month
    int year

    other can separating out the "/" and converting chars to int?

    Code:
    #include <ctime>
    Use localtime() or another standard C library function which returns a struct tm containing int fields for day, month, year, etc.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
