C Program to Display the current Date and Time

The C library function char *ctime(const time_t *timer) returns a string representing the localtime based on the argument timer. The returned string has the following format: Www Mmm dd hh:mm:ss yyyy. Here Www is the weekday, Mmm the month in letters, dd the day of the month, hh:mm:ss the time and yyyy the year.

int main()
    printf("\n\n\t\tStudytonight - Best place to learn\n\n\n");

    time_t t;   // not a primitive datatype

    printf("\nThis program has been writeen at (date and time): %s", ctime(&t));

    printf("\n\n\t\t\tCoding is Fun !\n\n\n");
    return 0;
