I have a program that saves the time as GMT instead of the current timezone on a UNIX box. How do I modify this snippit to produce the correct time zone time?

(part of an fprintf statement)

c=mygethostbyaddr((char*)&trans->data.trans.client.s_addr),timestamp->tm_mday,monthname[timestamp->tm_mon],timestamp->tm_year+1900,timestamp->tm_hour,timestamp->tm_min,timestamp->tm_sec;

Thanks,
Brian

pasted from msdnlibrary:

Converts a time value and corrects for the local time zone.

struct tm *localtime( const time_t *timer );

or without correction of time zone

Converts a time value to a structure.

struct tm *gmtime( const time_t *timer );


hope this would help.

I had a previous line referencing gmtime and I changed it to localtime as you suggested. Solved the issue perfectly.
