asctime without trailing newline character

19
Hello, all. I am writing a patch of code that displays the time and date in the middle of the line. I am using the asctime function from ctime but I don't want the trailing newline character after the execution.

Is there any way to remove it, or should I go about finding the time using a different method?

  1. ostream &td(ostream &stream)
  2. {
  3.   time_t t;
  4.  
  5.   t = time(NULL);
  6.   stream << asctime(localtime(&t));
  7.  
  8.   return stream;
  9. }

asctime returns a C-style string. The \n is the byte before the \0. Just change the \n byte to \0 and off you go.
