Rust program to create a date object using ymd() function

Rust | Date & Time Example: Write a program to create a date object using ymd() function.
Submitted by Nidhi, on November 07, 2021

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will create a date object by specifying the year, month, date in the ymd() function and print the created date.

Add Chrono date-time external library to your project

  1. Create your project using the below command.
    $cargo new datetime -bin
  2. Goto the project folder cd datetime and edit Cargo.toml file.
    $datetime>nano Cargo.toml
  3. Then add dependency in Cargo.toml file
    chrono = "0.4"
  4. After that, build your project using the below command
    $datetime>cargo build
  5. Then execute your project after modification in src/ source file.
    $datetime>cargo run

Program/Source Code:

The source code to create a date object using the ymd() function is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on UBUNTU 18.04 successfully.

// Rust program to create a date object 
// using ymd() function

use chrono::prelude::*;

fn main() {
    let dt = Utc.ymd(2014, 10, 23);
    println!("Date: {}", dt);


$datetime> cargo run
   Compiling datetime v0.1.0 (/home/arvind/Desktop/rust/datetime)
    Finished dev [unoptimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 0.29s
     Running `target/debug/datetime`

Date: 2014-10-23 UTC


In the above program, we imported the "Chrono" library to our project for performing date and time operations. We imported the Chrono library using the below line:

use chrono::prelude::*;

In the main() function, we created a date object by specified year, month, date using the ymd() method and printed the created date object.
