C Date Time: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a program in C to compute the number of seconds passed since the beginning of the month.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
 
int main(void)
{
    time_t now;
    time(&now);
 
    struct tm beg_month;
    beg_month = *localtime(&now);
    beg_month.tm_hour = 0;
    beg_month.tm_min = 0;
    beg_month.tm_sec = 0;
    beg_month.tm_mday = 1;
 
    double seconds = difftime(now, mktime(&beg_month));
    printf("\n %.f seconds passed since the beginning of the month.\n\n", seconds);
    return 0;
}

Sample Output:

 222084 seconds passed since the beginning of the month.

N.B.: The result may varry for your current system date and time.
