C++ program to convert time from 12 hour to 24 hour format

1.3

Given a time in 12-hour AM/PM format, convert it to military (24-hour) time.
Note: Midnight is 12:00:00 AM on a 12-hour clock and 00:00:00 on a 24-hour clock. Noon is 12:00:00 PM on 12-hour clock and 12:00:00 on 24-hour clock

Examples:

Input : A single string containing a time in 12-hour 
clock format(hh:mm:ss AM or hh:mm:ss PM
        where 01 <= hh <= 12 or 01 <= mm,ss <= 59 
Output :Convert and print the given time in 24-hour format,
where 00 <= hh <= 23

Input : 07:05:45PM
Output : 19:05:45

// C++ program to convert 12 hour to 24 hour
// format
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

void print24(string str)
{
    // Get hours
    int h1 = (int)str[1] - '0';
    int h2 = (int)str[0] - '0';
    int hh = (h2 * 10 + h1 % 10);

    // If time is in "AM"
    if (str[8] == 'A')
    {
        if (hh == 12)
        {
            cout << "00";
            for (int i=2; i <= 7; i++)
                cout << str[i];
        }
        else
        {
            for (int i=0; i <= 7; i++)
                cout << str[i];
        }
    }

    // If time is in "PM"
    else
    {
        if (hh == 12)
        {
            cout << "12";
            for (int i=2; i <= 7; i++)
                cout << str[i];
        }
        else
        {
            hh = hh + 12;
            cout << hh;
            for (int i=2; i <= 7; i++)
                cout << str[i];
        }
    }
}

// Driver code
int main()
{
   string str = "07:05:45PM";
   print24(str);
   return 0;
}

Output:

19:05:45
