Defined in header <wchar.h>
size_t wcsftime( wchar_t* str, size_t count, const wchar_t* format, tm* time );

Converts the date and time information from a given calendar time time to a null-terminated wide character string str according to format string format. Up to count bytes are written.

Contents

Parameters

str - pointer to the first element of the wchar_t array for output
count - maximum number of wide characters to write
format - pointer to a null-terminated wide character string specifying the format of conversion.

The format string consists of zero or more conversion specifiers and ordinary characters (except %). All ordinary characters, including the terminating null character, are copied to the output string without modification. Each conversion specification begins with % character, optionally followed by E or O modifier (ignored if unsupported by the locale), followed by the character that determines the behavior of the specifier. The following format specifiers are available:

Conversion
specifier
Explanation Used fields
% writes literal %. The full conversion specification must be %%.
n
(C99)
writes newline character
t
(C99)
writes horizontal tab character

writes year in the alternative representation, e.g.平成23年 (year Heisei 23) instead of 2011年 (year 2011) in ja_JP locale tm_year
y writes last 2 digits of year as a decimal number (range [00,99]) tm_year

Return value

number of wide characters written into the wide character array pointed to by str not including the terminating L'\0' on success. If count was reached before the entire string could be stored, 0 is returned and the contents are undefined.

Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <wchar.h>
#include <locale.h>
 
int main()
{
    wchar_t buff[40];
    struct tm my_time = { .tm_year=112, // = year 2012
                          .tm_mon=9,    // = 10th month
                          .tm_mday=9,   // = 9th day
                          .tm_hour=8,   // = 8 hours
                          .tm_min=10,   // = 10 minutes
                          .tm_sec=20    // = 20 secs
    };
 
    if (wcsftime(buff, sizeof buff, L"%A %c", &my_time)) {
        printf("%ls\n", buff);
    } else {
        puts("wcsftime failed");
    }
 
    setlocale(LC_ALL, "ja_JP.utf8");
 
    if (wcsftime(buff, sizeof buff, L"%A %c", &my_time)) {
        printf("%ls\n", buff);
    } else {
        puts("wcsftime failed");
    }
}

Output:

Sunday Sun Oct  9 08:10:20 2012
