Shell be able to change dateformat

Postby JosDuchIt » Wed Mar 04, 2015 8:58 pm

It would be great to have the possibility to chose any of the DOS supported date formats.


Having List produce a usable datestamp for SetDate would be one benefit
Easier manipulation of fileselections produced List/Find etc the main one

Hello all you happy core-developers,

Not sure if I should post this in feature requests, or if it is a little slip in the "Setdate" code.

Anyway, c:Date does support the date format set in locale. e.g., I have set it to Sweden, so the date format is "2019-12-10 02.10.12".
In a shell I can type "Date 2020-01-14 14.14.14" and the date will be set so.
However if I try the same with "Setdate" for a file or directory, it will not accept the locale format.
I will need to type "Setdate 14-jan-2020 14:14:14".

And then, if that gets maybe changed/corrected/added and maybe the PTB decide to release it, also non-beta-testers will get be able to enjoy it. :)

Thumbs up for tirelessly continuing to work on the OS in background. 8-) :D
