time.Time.Clock() Function in Golang With Examples

  • Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

In Go language, time packages supplies functionality for determining as well as viewing time. The Time.Clock() function in Go language is used to check the hour, minute, and second within the day in which the stated “t” presents itself. Moreover, this function is defined under the time package. Here, you need to import the “time” package in order to use these functions.

Syntax:

func (t Time) Clock() (hour, min, sec int)

Here, “t” is the stated time.

Return Value: It returns hour, minute and second of the stated “t”.

Example 1:






// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Clock() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Declaring t in UTC
    t := time.Date(2020, 13, 34, 12, 45, 55, 0, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Clock method
    hour, minute, second := t.Clock()
  
    // Prints hours
    fmt.Printf("The stated hour is: %v hours\n", hour)
  
    // Prints minutes
    fmt.Printf("The stated minute is: %v minutes\n", minute)
  
    // Prints seconds
    fmt.Printf("The stated second is: %v seconds\n", second)
}

Output:

The stated hour is: 12 hours
The stated minute is: 45 minutes
The stated second is: 55 seconds

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Clock() function
  
// Including main package
package main
  
// Importing fmt and time
import "fmt"
import "time"
  
// Calling main
func main() {
  
    // Declaring t in UTC
    t := time.Date(2020, 13, 34, 25, 66, 100, 0, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Clock method
    hour, minute, second := t.Clock()
  
    // Prints hours
    fmt.Printf("The stated hour is: %v hours\n", hour)
  
    // Prints minutes
    fmt.Printf("The stated minute is: %v minutes\n", minute)
  
    // Prints seconds
    fmt.Printf("The stated second is: %v seconds\n", second)
}

Output:

The stated hour is: 2 hours
The stated minute is: 7 minutes
The stated second is: 40 seconds

Here, the stated hour, minute, and day are out of usual range but they are normalized while conversion.
