Defined in header <locale>
    class CharT, 
    class OutputIt = std::ostreambuf_iterator<CharT> 
> class time_put;

Class template std::time_put encapsulates date and time formatting rules. The I/O manipulator std::put_time uses the std::time_put facet of the I/O stream's locale to generate text representation of an std::tm object.

Type requirements

-OutputIt must meet the requirements of LegacyOutputIterator.


Two standalone (locale-independent) full specializations and two partial specializations are provided by the standard library:

Defined in header <locale>
std::time_put<char> creates narrow string representations of date and time
std::time_put<wchar_t> creates wide string representations of date and time
std::time_put<char, OutputIt> creates narrow string representations of date and time using custom output iterator
std::time_put<wchar_t, OutputIt> creates wide string representations of date and time using custom output iterator

In addition, every locale object constructed in a C++ program implements its own (locale-specific) versions of these specializations.
