    Time code and timer

    Hi, here is some useful code, the first one is the current date and time, and the second one is a cool little timer.
    /*Date and time*/
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>

    int main ()
    {
    time_t rawtime;
    struct tm * timeinfo;

    time ( &rawtime );
    timeinfo = localtime ( &rawtime );
    printf ( "Current date and time are: %s", asctime (timeinfo) );
    getch();

    return 0;
    }

    On this next code you can change the 10 in the for loop to whatever number you want the counter to start.:
    /* Timer decrements from 10 to 1!*/
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>

    void wait ( int seconds )
    {
    clock_t endwait;
    endwait = clock () + seconds * CLK_TCK ;
    while (clock() < endwait) {}
    }

    int main ()
    {
    int n;
    printf ("Starting countdown...\n");
    for (n=10; n>0; n--)
    {
    printf ("%d\n",n);
    wait (1);
    }
    printf ("Blast off!!! NASA we have lift off!!!\n");
    return 0;
    }
