Objective-C Question

Get current system time?

Whats the best way to get the current time (HH:MM:SS) using Objective-C. I would guess I should be looking at NSDate & NSDateFormatter. I had a quick glance at the docs and it looked a little more convoluted than I expected, so I thought I would check here to make sure I was on the right track.


NSDate * now = [NSDate date];
NSDateFormatter *outputFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
[outputFormatter setDateFormat:@"HH:mm:ss"];
NSString *newDateString = [outputFormatter stringFromDate:now];
NSLog(@"newDateString %@", newDateString);
[outputFormatter release];
