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

wcsftime - convert date and time to wide character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> XPG4 and SUS size_t wcsftime(wchar_t *wcs, size_t maxsize, const char *format, const struct tm *timptr); Default and other standards size_t wcsftime(wchar_t *restrict wcs, size_t maxsize, const wchar_t *restrict format, const struct tm *restrict timptr); DESCRIPTION
The wcsftime() function is equivalent to the strftime(3C) function, except that: o The argument wcs points to the initial element of an array of wide-characters into which the generated output is to be placed. o The argument maxsize indicates the maximum number of wide-characters to be placed in the output array. o The argument format is a wide-character string and the conversion specifications are replaced by corresponding sequences of wide- characters. o The return value indicates the number of wide-characters placed in the output array. If copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is undefined. RETURN VALUES
If the total number of resulting wide character codes (including the terminating null wide-character code) is no more than maxsize, wcsf- time() returns the number of wide-character codes placed into the array pointed to by wcs, not including the terminating null wide-charac- ter code. Otherwise, 0 is returned and the contents of the array are indeterminate. The wcfstime() function uses malloc(3C) and should malloc() fail, errno will be set by malloc(). ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |CSI |Enabled | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Standard | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe with exceptions | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
malloc(3C), setlocale(3C), strftime(3C), attributes(5), standards(5) NOTES
The wcsftime() function can be used safely in multithreaded applications, as long as setlocale(3C) is not being called to change the locale. SunOS 5.10 1 Nov 2003 wcsftime(3C)

gawk and strftime()

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)
