[REBOL] ftp and german date format

From: moeller_thorsten::gmx::de at: 6-Oct-2000 10:13

Hi all, 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. (Sent ot feedback as well) Thorsten Moeller
