I don't mean to minimize the annoyance that can be caused by time
formats being incorrect, but if this format issue has been a
showstopper for you, you should stay away from gambas2 for a
while yet.... the syntax can (and does) still change from
version to version, and things can still behave unpredictably.
Personally, I wrote a "gb.posix" component last year just so I
could use strftime() in my Gambas projects. (Posted it here, no
one cared.) Nowadays I guess I would use gb.api to do the same
thing. I like having one standard set of formats rather than
having to go, "Hmmm, is a minute 'm' or 'n' or 'M' in this
language?" I like to know that I can type "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"
and get 2005-10-18 23:55 in whatever languages give me access to
I personally don't mind, except when I find a project I was
working on circa 1.9.2 and want to pick it back up ;)
