  • Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

In Go language, time packages supplies functionality for determining as well as viewing time. The Time.Date() function in Go language is used to check the year, month, and 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) Date() (year int, month Month, day int)

Here, “t” is the stated time.

Return Value: It returns year, month and day of the stated “t”.

Example 1:






// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Before() 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, 5, 6, 11, 45, 04, 0, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Date method
    yyyy, mm, dd := t.Date()
  
    // Prints year
    fmt.Printf("The stated year is: %v\n", yyyy)
  
    // Prints month
    fmt.Printf("The stated month is: %v\n", mm)
  
    // Prints day
    fmt.Printf("The stated day is: %v\n", dd)
}

Output:

The stated year is: 2020
The stated month is: May
The stated day is: 6

Example 2:




// Golang program to illustrate the usage of
// Time.Before() 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, 00, 00, 00, 0, time.UTC)
  
    // Calling Date method
    yyyy, mm, dd := t.Date()
  
    // Prints year
    fmt.Printf("The stated year is: %v\n", yyyy)
  
    // Prints month
    fmt.Printf("The stated month is: %v\n", mm)
  
    // Prints day
    fmt.Printf("The stated day is: %v\n", dd)
}

Output:

The stated year is: 2021
The stated month is: February
The stated day is: 3

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