Thank you, it works as planned, now as: int mo = Now.month; // --> 7 == Repost the article of Jonathan M Davis (jmdavisProg gmx.com) == Posted at 2011/07/18 12:14 to digitalmars.D.learn On Monday 18 July 2011 16:01:06 dsmith wrote:Recall that std.date used the following to retrieve a month in integer form (0 .. 11): auto Now = std.date.getUTCtime(); writeln(std.date.monthFromTime(Now)); Using std.datetime, the following yields the abbreviated month name: auto Now = Clock.currTime(); writefln("%s", Now.month); // --> jul Now, how can std.datetime be used to print the month in integer form?
Cast it to an integer (or use std.conv.to will probably work - it _should_ at least; if it doesn't, it needs to be fixed). std.datetime.Month is a named enum. So, presumably that's why you're seeing it as a the enum's name. I think that that's only happening because you're using it directly in writefln though. If you assigned it to a variable first, I think that it would just be a ubyte, since that's the type of the Month enum). - Jonathan M Davis
