Working with time functions: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems

C comes with a host of functions for reporting the current time. The time() function returns the number of seconds elapsed since January 1, 1970, known as the Unix epoch. The value returned from the time() function is a time_t value. The localtime() function takes a time_t value and returns a tm structure that contains various time elements, such as the hour, minute, day of the month, and so on.
