    Unhappy Date/Time confusion?

    Hi,

    Need som help with a Date/Time problem.
    I've read page up and page down about different ways to determine the date and time in a function. But I get very confused because which way should I use? Which one can you recommand for me to use?

    I need to determine the time and date. So I can write it to a file with some other stuff i need to remember.

    The file creation and inputting is no problem though.

    Thx in advance.

    Here's a simple example.
    Code:
    #include <ctime>
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
       time_t now = time(NULL);
       tm *t = localtime(&now);
       cout << t->tm_mon+1 << endl;
       cout << t->tm_mday << endl;
       cout << t->tm_year+1900 << endl;
       cout << t->tm_hour << endl;
       cout << t->tm_min << endl;
       cout << t->tm_sec << endl;
    
       return 0;
    }
