Yes. As you will notice my email arrived shortly after your email (major list latency today). Sterling's version is shorter and more elegant. The version that he included in the other thread returns the block instead of the month abbreviation, but simply adding another 'first fixes it, as he did in the shorter version in this thread. ... if seek: find conv month [return first find seek block!] ... becomes ... if seek: find conv month [return first first find seek block!] ...

I agree. I'm disappointed that no one has posted more versions to the list, and I still don't know how the French handle June/July with "Jui" being the first three letters of both. Oh well, it didn't hurt to try.

Later today, I'll work on a way to add the patch to the existing scheme (maybe someone has already done this?), and adding Sterling's convert-month function and patch to the user.r file is surely the best way to do it. I'll post what I find when I can take some time to look/experiment. --Scott Jones
