[REBOL] ftp and german date format
From: moeller_thorsten::gmx::de at: 6-Oct-2000 10:13
i am using a modified version of the rebcron to get a file daily from my
companies server. Until beginning of October everything went fine, but now
it hangs. I got an error which results from an incorrect date in the view of
rebol. In the ftp function there must be a part which is checking the date
of the file to be read. As we are using a German Version of Reliant Unix
(Sinix) on our Server i am receiving the following date "6/Okt/2000/6:56".
The problem is that Rebol tries a "to-date!" in his ftp-function on this
date. As Rebol only accepts "Oct" for October (in German it is "Okt" for
Oktober) this ran into an error. The same problem will arise in December
where in German it is Dezember (Dez) instead of December (Dec) and in May
where it is Mai.
Perhaps there is a way to correct this.
