The full month name according to the current locale.

%c

The preferred date and time representation for the current locale.

%C

The century number (year/100) as a 2-digit integer.

%d

The day of the month as a decimal number (range 01 to 31).

%D

Equivalent to %m/%d/%y. (for Americans only. Americans should note that in other countries %d/%m/%y is rather common. This means that in international context this format is ambiguous and should not be used.)

%e

Like %d, the day of the month as a decimal number, but a leading zero is replaced by a space.

%E

Modifier: use alternative format, see below.

%F

Equivalent to %Y-%m-%d (the ISO 8601 date format). (C99)

%G

The ISO 8601 week-based year (see NOTES) with century as a decimal number. The 4-digit year corresponding to the ISO week number (see %V). This has the same format and value as %Y, except that if the ISO week number belongs to the previous or next year, that year is used instead.

%g

Like %G, but without century, that is, with a 2-digit year (00-99). (TZ)

%h

Equivalent to %b.

%H

The hour as a decimal number using a 24-hour clock (range 00 to 23).

%j

The day of the year as a decimal number (range 001 to 366).

%k

The hour (24-hour clock) as a decimal number (range 0 to 23); single digits are preceded by a blank. (See also %H.)

The hour (12-hour clock) as a decimal number (range 1 to 12); single digits are preceded by a blank. (See also %I.)

%m

The month as a decimal number (range 01 to 12).

Either "AM" or "PM" according to the given time value, or the corresponding strings for the current locale. Noon is treated as "PM" and midnight as "AM".

%P

Like %p but in lowercase: "am" or "pm" or a corresponding string for the current locale.

%r

The time in a.m. or p.m. notation. In the POSIX locale this is equivalent to %I:%M:%S %p.
