one way to do it is this:

#include <dos.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
   struct date d;

   getdate(&d);
   printf("Report Date: %d-%d-%d  \n", d.da_year,d.da_day,d.da_mon);
   return 0;
}

Your answer was excellent ... BUT ... I forgot to mention I'm running under Unix!

This should work on most UNIX systems.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>

int main(void)
{
  time_t t;

  time(&t);
  printf("Today's date and time: %s\n", ctime(&t));
  return 0;
}

I'll try it out as soon as I can ... Which will probably only be tomorrow. I'll let you know how it works out.
