time

This is a discussion on time within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; this prints the time Code: #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <time.h> int main(void) { time_t now; time(&now); printf("%s", ctime(&now)); return ...

    time

    this prints the time

    Code:
     
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <time.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
      time_t now;
      time(&now);
    
      printf("%s", ctime(&now));
    
      return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    but it doesnt keep up. So i would like some hints on how to keep the time going. if all possible.

    maybe something like this:

    Code:
    time_t now;
    time(&now);
    
    while(true)
    {
        time(&now);
        char *sz = ctime(&now);
    
        sz[strlen(sz) - 1] = 0; /* this gets rid of the \n */
        printf("\r%s         ", sz);
    }
