What have you tried so far? What kind of results are you currently getting? We can't even begin to help until we know what you have and what you've tried.

I wrote this DateClass some time ago, see if you find a use for it. Study carefully and
you might find what you wanted.

i had tried to seach sources in internet.
but mostly is display in date.
firstPerson : is that simplest way source code? so far im just a sem 1 and year 1 diploma student, and also i learnt till nested-loop only. (:

by the way,
my software is Microsoft Visual C++
and i tried your source code, when compile it show me a error which is
"c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\eh.h(32) : fatal error C1189: #error : "eh.h is only for C++!"
Error executing cl.exe."

what it mean?
thanks anyway bro.

Get a timestamp using time(), convert it to the string representation using ctime(), then tokenize the string using strtok(). If you want the month, you'll need the second token.

oh.
i can already..
but i no using you gave to me code. sorry about that.
about how i solve it.
here is the code:

time_t rawtime;
  struct tm * timeinfo;
  char month [80];

  time ( &rawtime );
  timeinfo = localtime ( &rawtime );

  strftime (month,80,"%B"timeinfo);
  printf("Month : %s\n", month);

it works anyway (: thank you all guys so much (:
