    Check this page out: http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/clibrary/ctime/

    That should give you the list of functions necessary to do all kinds of things with date and time. Just remember to include the <ctime> header before you use any of those functions or data types.

    1. read FAQ http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284392
    2. search forum with "date time" key words
    3. read the answers to the similar questions
    4. write your own code
    5. if you'll have problems - post your code and ask concrete question
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
