Date-time operators

Tinderbox Icon

Date accessors and manipulator operators are available for rules and actions:

Note that unlike the ^export codes (now deprecated for internal use), the action code way to format a date string is to call the date operator within the format() operator.

Date examples:

date(2004,7,23,16,45) ...is 23 July 2004 4:45pm 

If $Date is July 4, 2009 then

day($Date) ...is 4

If $Date is July 4,2009, then

$Date=day($Date,5) 

will change $Date to July 5, 2009.

If $Date is July 4, 2009 then

month($Date) ...is 7

If $Date is July 4,2009, then

$Date=month($Date,5) 

will change $Date to May 4, 2009.
