time() function

P: 4
Hi all!

I made a complete IRC Services application in Perl and now i'll want to do the same with C++.
I use BSD Socket. After established the connection with the server, my services need to use the NICK commande to introduce a Service NickName like Chanserv.

The syntax is like: NICK nickname numeric timestamp 0 :description

I try to do:

char * msg;
msg = "NICK bot 3 "time()" 0 :IRC Services\r\n";
send(sockfd, msg, len, 0);

But an error occur during compulation about the () of time.

I'll hope somebody could help me!

Thanks in advance!

I assume you are attempting to concatenate three strings here
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. char * msg;
  2. msg = "NICK bot 3 "time()" 0 :IRC Services\r\n";
try using strcat()
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     time_t t;
  2.     char msg[100]="NICK bot 3 ";  // sufficent space for complete text;
  3.     time(&t);                     // get currect time
  4.     strcat(msg, ctime(&t));       // add time to msg
when run msg contains something like
NICK bot 3 Thu Feb 22 06:39:50 2007
0 :IRC Services
