Summary
  • ANSI C's time.h library functions allow for keeping track of current time and date. Programmers can perform time/​date arithmetic by changing tm structure values. Those that need to calculate the interval between two dates in measurements other than seconds or need to process dates outside the system's range will have to employ their own technique for date encoding. THE ANSI standard does not define a universal function for retrieving a file's time/​date stamps since file systems are variable depending on the operating system platform. Programmers will find, however, that many operating systems offer the UNIX stat function. They can overwrite the first byte of a file with itself in order to update a file's time/​date stamp to the current time. Extensive details are provided.
