The following example prints out the system time using time. It then prints the same time value in Linux-style format.
#include <time.h> time_t t;
// Get system time and display as number and string
lr_message ("Time in seconds since 1/1/70: %ld\n", time(&t)); lr_message ("Formatted time and date: %s", ctime(&t));
Time in seconds since 1/1/70: 1019382960
Formatted time and date: Sun Apr 21 11:56:00 2002
