time functions in a c program

Can anybody help me ? I am a beginner in programming. I need to create a program than enables me to schedule some routine jobs. The problem is that these scheduled jobs do not take place at a fixed time : that is it depend on the time the sun rises, sets and cross the meridiem. So I have the whole year planned, but how to implement that in a c program is my nightmare. I would appreciate any help. Thanks

perhaps this helps:

also you might find this useful:
// example for CTime::CTime
time_t osBinaryTime;  // C run-time time (defined in <time.h>)
time( &osBinaryTime ) ;  // Get the current time from the 
                         // operating system.
CTime time1; // Empty CTime. (0 is illegal time value.)
CTime time2 = time1; // Copy constructor.
CTime time3( osBinaryTime );  // CTime from C run-time time
CTime time4( 1999, 3, 19, 22, 15, 0 ); // 10:15PM March 19, 1999
[b]CTIME does not have a base class.[/b}

A CTime object represents an absolute time and date. The CTime class incorporates the ANSI time_t data type and its associated run-time functions, including the ability to convert to and from a Gregorian date and 24-hour time.

you need to
#include <afx.h>
all this I took it from the MSDN and the help-search in VC++6

Thanks for your help. I do appreciate it. But the problem is that I am using linux development tools (gcc ..), so I wander if the code still works under linux or it is applicable only under MsWindows;
Thank you!
