iHTML is a web programming language and as such can be used to
build non-compliant Y2K applications.
iHTML's date related functions are built on the date functions
provided in the Microsoft C compiler which are Year 2000 compliant.
As a result all of iHTML's date functions are Year 2000 Compliant.
The following is a list of date related tags in iHTML and how
to use them to ensure the creation of Year 2000 compliant applications.
Note: ODBC Formatted Dates refers to YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS)
iCRDATE - This tag creates a date in any format desired. The
default is MM/DD/YY, selecting FMT="%Y-%m-%d" will produce
a Y2K date.
iCRDATETIME - This tag creates a date and time in any format desired.
The default is MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS, selecting FMT="%Y-%m-%d
%H:%M:S" will produce a Y2K date and time.
iDATE - This tag returns by default today's date or can be used
to reformat any date. The default output is MM/DD/YY, selecting
FMT="%Y-%m-%d" will produce a Y2K date.
iDATEDIFF - This tag returns the different between 2 dates. This
tag accepts long year dates.
iDATEEXT - This tag takes a date (both long and short year) and
returns extended information about that date such as the number
of days in the year etc
iDATETIME - This tag takes a date (both long and short year) and
time and outputs in the default format of MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS, selecting
FMT="%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:S" will produce a Y2K date and time.
iDTSTRUCT - This tag takes a date (both long and short year) and
sets 6 variables to the components of the date. The :i_dt_year
variables returns long years.
iFILEINFO - there is an option on this tag to retrieve the file
date which is stored by the file system in a non compliant manner.
iISDATE - this determines if a string is in fact a date, it accepts
both long and short year formats
iSCHEDULE - the dates are automatically converted to ODBC format when stored in the scheduler database.
