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 ;)
