> class time_put;

Class template std::time_put encapsulates date and time formatting rules. The I/O manipulator std::put_time uses the std::time_put facet of the I/O stream's locale to generate text representation of an std::tm object.

Inheritance diagram

If a std::time_put specialization is not guaranteed to be provided by the standard library (see below), the behaviors of its put() and do_put() are not guaranteed as specified.


[edit] Specializations

The standard library is guaranteed to provide the following specializations (they are required to be implemented by any locale object):

Defined in header <locale>
std::time_put<char> creates narrow string representations of date and time
std::time_put<wchar_t> creates wide string representations of date and time

In addition, the standard library is also guaranteed to provide every specialization that satisfies the following type requirements:

  • CharT is one of char and wchar_t, and
  • OutputIt must meet the requirements of LegacyOutputIterator.
