WCSFTIME(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					       WCSFTIME(3)

NAME
wcsftime, wcsftime_l -- convert date and time to a wide-character string LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> size_t wcsftime(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize, const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timeptr); #include <wchar.h> #include <xlocale.h> size_t wcsftime_l(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize, const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timeptr, locale_t loc); DESCRIPTION
The wcsftime() function is equivalent to the strftime() function, except for the types of its arguments. Refer to strftime(3) for a detailed description. While the wcsftime() function uses the current locale, the wcsftime_l() function may be passed a locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more information. COMPATIBILITY
Some early implementations of wcsftime() had a format argument with type const char *, instead of const wchar_t *. SEE ALSO
strftime(3), xlocale(3) STANDARDS
The wcsftime() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99''). BSD

gawk and strftime()

Strange behaviour of the strftime() function from gawk (3.1.5): $ awk 'BEGIN{print strftime("%T", 3600)}' > 02:00:00 $ awk 'BEGIN{print strftime("%T", 0)}' > 01:00:00 Obviously something with DST but I can not figure out why? To me 3600 epoch seconds remains 01:00, DST or not. From... (2 Replies)

wcsftime() on HPUX doesn't work

Hi, I'm wrote a small program on HPUX that uses wcsftime, but this function seems to be not working - I get 0 as a result, the output buffer returns empty, and errno is 0 : #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main () { size_t formattedTimeLength = 0; wchar_t formattedTime... (9 Replies)

strftime equivalent in c++

HI, i wish to convert a millsec value to a readable string format. the one option is to use strftime. However this is a bit costly (1-5 micros). is there a a faster way to do so with just string manipulation (Note i have the date object which has the time details but wish o avoid strftime) (2 Replies)
