This isn't really a djgpp question, it's a general language 
question.  I don't know about C++, but in C you'd use `gmtime' 
or `localtime' to convert the value returned by `time' to a 
readable format.  Here's a copy of the example from the 
documentation of `gmtime':

     time_t x;
     struct tm *t;
     time(&x);
     t = gmtime(&t);

On the other hand, if you just want an ASCII representation of 
the time, look up `ctime' and `asctime'.
