This is a C++ program to convert time from 12 hour to 24 hour format.

## Algorithm

Begin
In main(),
If median = pm
Check if entered hours is less than 12
Then add 12 to hours and print the time in 24 hours format.
Check if entered hours is equal to 12
Then print “00” as hours and print the time in 24 hours format.
Else If median=am
Check if entered hours is less than 12
Then print the time in 24 hours format.
Check if entered hours is equal to 12
Then print “12” as hours and print the time in 24 hours format.
Else print wrong choice.
End

## Example

#include<iostream>
#include<string.h>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;
int main() {
int hours,minutes,seconds,h1,m1,s1;
char median;
cout<<"Enter hours, minutes, seconds:";
cin>>hours;
cin>>minutes;
cin>>seconds;
cout<<"Enter median:";
cin>>median;
cout<<"Time in 12 hour format:"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<hours<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2)
<<minutes<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<seconds<<median<<endl; //setw()=sets the field width,
//setfill()=set character as the streams fill character.
if(strcmp(median,"pm")==0) { //compare the strings "0" is for true "1" is for false.
if (hours<12) {
h1=hours+12;
m1=minutes;
s1=seconds;
cout<<"Time in 24 hour format:" <<h1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<m1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<s1<<median;
} else if(hours=12) {
h1=12;
m1=minutes;
s1=seconds;
cout<<"Time in 24 hour format:"<<h1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<m1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<s1<<median;
}
} else if(strcmp(median,"am")==0) {
if (hours<12) {
h1=hours;
m1=minutes;
s1=seconds;
cout<<"Time in 24 hour format:"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<h1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<m1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<s1<<median;
} else if(hours=12) {
m1=minutes;
s1=seconds;
cout<<"Time in 24 hour format:"<<"00"<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<m1<<":"<<setfill('0') << setw(2) <<s1<<median;
}
} else {
printf("Wrong choice");
}
}
