Date & Time VC2010
« on: September 13, 2015, 12:37:46 AM »

 Good Morning:

 I have just cut the grass.
 I resently realized that the UTC time is not adjusted for
 Daylight Savings time i e British Summer Time.
 So I wrote some c++ code.
 
Code: [Select]
// 2010Lib.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
//
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <windows.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/timeb.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>
  using std::cout;
  using std::endl;
// crt_times.c
// compile with: /W3
// This program demonstrates these time and date functions:
//      time         _ftime    ctime_s     asctime_s
//      _localtime64_s    _gmtime64_s    mktime    _tzset
//      _strtime_s     _strdate_s  strftime
//
// Also the global variable:
//      _tzname
//
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])

  CONSOLE_SCREEN_BUFFER_INFO csbiInfo;
  HANDLE hStdout, hStdin;
  WORD wOldColorAttrs;

   if (! GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo(hStdout, &csbiInfo))
    {
        MessageBox(NULL, TEXT("GetConsoleScreenBufferInfo"),
            TEXT("Console Error"), MB_OK);
        return 1;
    }
   wOldColorAttrs = csbiInfo.wAttributes; // save old colors
   if (! SetConsoleTextAttribute(hStdout, 15))
