I think there is a macro somewhere on the forums for doing BCD output. Let me know if you cant find it and ill try and track it down for you.

There should also be various time and date examples available.

As for controlling 6, 7-segment displays you will simply have to use a timer interrupt to multiplex output between the displays. Then use a second timer interrupt to count your seconds to drive the time tracking system.
