[REBOL] Re: R: Date math bug?

Hi Giuseppe, On Wednesday, March 24, 2004, 2:28:22 PM, you wrote: GC> Bruno, it seems that you can't make the difference of a date/time with GC> another greater. GC> In the second example, the correct expression is test2 - test1 The problem actually is that SUBTRACT returns the number of days between the two dates; so the result is correct. You have to use DIFFERENCE if you want more precision.
