It's possible, but not directly. You need to rewrite the file from beginning to end and insert your modified parts at the appropriate place.

>any std library in c++ can handle the date?
Yes, and you would have figured that out by looking in a C++ reference. There's a header called <ctime>, and it contains the functions and types you need. Specifically, struct tm, mktime, and localtime.
