I think you’re reinventing the wheel here. All that is needed to get the date in that format is `/bin/date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S` which works on most *nix systems. All you are doing the “+%Y”… is just reformatting the output of the date command.

Subject: [Linux-fbdev-users] Question on time system
I know that i post this question in a wrong place, but if someone can help me to resolve it, it will be wonderful for me.
In fact, i must write a little program wich diplay the local time of system on this format (a string) : Year/Mount/Day/Hour/Minute/Second , like : 20060919164421
So, i can get the number of second since : 01/01/1970 at 00:00:00 but i dont know how to convert this to a string like above.
Here's my little code to get the number of second since 01/01/1970 :
#include < stdio.h>
result = time(NULL);
printf("%s%ju secs since January 1, 1970 0:00 UTC\n",
unsigned int seconds = (uintmax_t)result;
I know that i must use strftime() to convert but i dont know how.
So, i post this question here. And waiting for your helpful.
Thanks very much.
P/S : I dont care about Timezone (it's always in UTC - GMT)
