Thread: Time/Date getting access to?

  1. #1

    Post Time/Date getting access to?

    void tyme(void)
    time_t tim = time(NULL);
    printf("\n\n\t\t Time: %s", ctime(&tim));

    Hi want to be able to take the date or time out so as to append it to a transaction as it occurs in my code. Use the above to display time and date, but unsure how to actually break the time into components, eg min,hour - day,month,year. Can I put these into variables. Anyway not sure how to access them. Looked thru. lots of books with all sorts of details but none showing implementation.

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>
    int main(void)
       time_t now;
       if ( time(&now) != (time_t)(-1) )
          struct tm *today = localtime(&now);
          if ( today != NULL )
             const char Iso8601[] = "%Y-%m-%dT%X";
             char buffer[20];
             if ( strftime(buffer, sizeof(buffer), Iso8601, today) > 0 )

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
